A pioneering containerised ripening room has been developed by Interko after five years of research and development with industry giant Fyffes.
Interko has successfully built, installed and tested 120 customised rooms for Fyffes.
The solution works by constructing a ripening room inside a standard insulated refrigeration container, either retrospectively or from scratch, thereby turning the container itself into a ripening room.
The container can be used to ripen fruits such as bananas, avocados, mangoes and stonefruit, either at the source or in the destination market.
A voracious eater of decaying animal or plant waste allows a shorter decomposition time.
