Attractiveness, freshness, taste, anti-waste and better storage of fruits and vegetables on the fresh department
Day and night, ARECO nebulization preserves the freshness, taste and organoleptic qualities of your fruits and vegetables thanks to stable and controlled hygrometry (90% RH).
ARECO nebulization allows to enhance your produce departments while reducing food waste. Thanks to our nebulization 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.
Category of vegetables to nebulize
Leafy vegetables (leaf carrots, salads, radish, spinach…)
The humidification we provide on fruits and vegetables has many benefits:
Nebulisation preserves the freshness and nutritional qualities of vegetables
The study says that nebulization 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).
Nebulization thus maintains the products in a state similar than harvest step.
With nebulization, the products keep their freshness and their organoleptic/nutritional qualities from the farmer field to the fresh produce department.
Nebulization 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 nebulization can be adapted to your products layout.
ARECO nebulization tested and validated
"The results of this study show that the nebulized lettuce samples have, after 48 hours of conservation at 20°C, a water content and concentrations of compounds of nutritional interest (carotenoids, polyphenols) similar to those initially observed, and that this process makes it possible to maintain the product in a state of "freshness" close to the starting product. »
Christophe AUBERT, Laboratory Manager
« Lettuce can lose over 3% of its original weight, a radish bunch more than 2.5% and broccoli more than 1.5%. At these levels, physiological deterioration (wilting) are already visible on the lettuce and radish tops. When these products are subjected to appropriate humidification, respectively they lose two times less weight for lettuce, three times less for radish and almost four times less for broccoli »
« Benefits of installing a Nebulizer System: feeling refreshed, system that allows better conservation of salads, a process that results in more flattering offerings. »
« The implementation of the system gives the impression of a concern for product quality, ahead of its competitors, close to consumers. »
« The artichokes have a long shelf life of five days with ARECO nebulization, broccoli has one day, iceberg lettuce three days, the purple artichoke 7 days, 2 days fennel, asparagus 3 days. »
« Since installing, the ARECO nebulization system, the qualitative picture of the display increased significantly. »
« Marketing was always possible three days after the shelving for nebulized salads and 4 days for asparagus. These shelf lives are three times longer than in a refrigerated displays. »
A POS material is installed on the shelf to inform about the benefits of nebulization for the fruits and vegetables and to specify that the water fog diffused over the products is filtered, and without the addition of chemicals.
