“A pallet-based system to extend berry shelf-life”

Bas Groeneweg (CEO of PerfoTec) was one of the experts who spoke at the Global Berry Congress 2022. This congress – organized by Fruitnet - was held at the World Trade Centre in Rotterdam on Tuesday, November 15th.

During the Global Berry Congress, many experts spoke about new opportunities, new transformative technologies, and options to secure the future. Bas Groeneweg passionately talked about our solution for transporting berries in bulk. "Our Patented PerfoTec LinerBag is made of bio-based home compostable materials with ideal permeability properties. This innovative solution resolves the key problems of excess water and dioxide during the transport of fresh produce. Compared with conventional – macro-perforated packaging – the weight loss of blueberries is five times higher than blueberries packed with a micro-perforated PerfoTec LinerBag. Our top seal solutions for Spanish, Egyptian, and Californian strawberries (depending on the variety) outperform the conventional packaging with 2-8 extra days of shelf-life."

In addition, Bas announced that a new pallet-based system to extend the shelf-life will be launched in January 2023, and he compared old techniques with this new solution. PerfoTec is convinced that this solution is a breakthrough for the bulk transport of all varieties of Fresh Produce. 

During the networking break, many buyers, suppliers, and other key industry players met with the PerfoTec staff in person, and many of them put their names on the list to be informed when our pallet-based system is on the market. If you want to be on this shortlist as well, please contact us:
