Israeli agritech start-up Sufresca has expanded its invisible edible coating for shelf life extension to more fresh produce products.

By using our edible coatings, retailers can now use biodegradable packaging without any concern about shelf life. The coatings can extend produce preservation by up to several weeks, saving plastic packaging and extending shipment time.

Shelf life remains a logistical priority for retailers. According to Innova Market Insights, 40% of global consumers demonstrate very little or no willingness at all to compromise on shelf life, even if it means reducing plastic packaging. Sufresca’s breathable coating slows down fresh produce’s post-harvest maturation, ripening processes, subsequent degradation and decay.

Sufresca’s coating is Food and Drug Administration Generally Recognized As Safe for all fruits and vegetables and complies with EU regulations for selected fruits.
