Nebulisation

Attractiveness, freshness, taste, anti-waste and better storage of fruits and vegetables on the fresh department

Day and night, ARECO nebulisation preserves the freshness, taste and organoleptic qualities of your fruits and vegetables thanks to stable and controlled hygrometry (90% RH).

ARECO nebulisation allows to enhance your fruits and vegetables departments while reducing food waste. Thanks to our nebulisation systems, your products retain their quality, they are better and longer preserved, which reduces the waste. The resources required to make them to reach the sales area are thus reduced.

  • Faster product turnover
  • Decrease of the breakage rate
  • Reduced weight loss of the fruits and vegetables
  • Extended exposure time (+1 to 4 days)
  • Decrease of the temperature above the shelf
  • The organoleptic qualities of the products are preserved: preservation of vitamins and polyphenols (trace elements with antioxidant properties)
  • Better layout of products on the shelf
  • Reduced staff intervention: thanks to 24-hour operation, products remain on the shelf night and day.
  • Improvement of the profitability of your fruits and vegetables department: return on investment between 12 and 18 months.

Nebulisation preserves the freshness and nutritional qualities of vegetables

The ARFITEC Group has conducted a study in collaboration with the CTIFL to measure the impact of nebulisation on leafy vegetables and more particularly salads.

The study says that nebulisation maintains the water content and avoids loss of mass in salads. The results also show a stability of the organoleptic properties (carotenoids, organic acids and polyphenols).

Nebulisation thus maintains the products in a state similar than harvest step.

With nebulisation, the products keep their freshness and their organoleptic/nutritional qualities from the farmer field to the fresh produce department.

Nebulisation adapts to your products layout

The fruits and vegetables department changes with the seasons. To meet this need, ARECO offers a modular solution so that the nebulisation can be adapted to your products layout.

ARECO nebulisation tested and validated

For consumers

A POS material is installed on the shelf to inform about the benefits of nebulisation for the fruits and vegetables and to specify that the water fog diffused over the products is filtered, and without the addition of chemicals.
