Eliminate usage of plastic film on cucumbers by using an edible, plant based coating
45% of fruits and vegetables are lost to waste every year. One of the solutions that are used in EU for reducing this waste is single-use plastic film. The film minimizes water loss, reduces gas penetration, and lowers the impact of microorganisms. On the other hand, plastic film is a fossil-based material with significant negative environmental impact such as greenhouse gas emissions and pollution of seas and the earth after usage.
In collaboration with growers, retailers, industry, and university, we have developed prototypes which can prolong the shelf life of a number of fresh fruits and vegetables.
The resulting bio-based edible vegan coating, should be easily applied by using dipping or spraying methods after harvest, and extend the shelf-life of the selected fruits and vegetables.
In this project, we are making trials together with our partners.
