Ethylene Absorbent

This is a cheaper alternative to imported ethylene absorbers that is effective in delaying the ripening and senescence of fruits and vegetables during distant transport and extended storage.

Adding ethylene absorbent to packs of fresh produce increases its shelf life and delays its ripening, softening, and yellowing until it reaches farther markets – thus securing adequate volume and supply, and a stable market price.
