Every plant on earth has a peel or skin that protects it. From apples to raspberries, the materials found in the skins and peels of plants are ubiquitous and consumed in the human diet in high quantities every day. Made of these same materials, Apeel adds a little extra "peel" to the surface of fresh produce that naturally reinforces the plant's own peel and slows the rate of water loss and oxidation — the primary causes of spoilage.
Produce with Apeel stays fresh two to three times longer, which promotes more sustainable growing practices, better quality food, and less food waste from farm to retail shelf to home.
For fresh food suppliers and retailers, Apeel is the only postharvest solution that creates an optimal microclimate inside of every piece of produce, which leads to improved quality, extended shelf life, and transportability — without requiring refrigeration, controlled atmosphere, or preservatives.
Apeel for Avocado is a proven way to achieve heartier avocados with better quality — inside and out — and a longer marketable and edible lifespan.
