AgroFresh adds organic apple products

AgroFresh Solutions Inc., a global AgTech innovator that provides produce freshness solutions and digital technologies that enhance the quality and extend the shelf life of fresh produce, has three additions to its Apple Complete portfolio.

Organic Materials Review Institute-certified CeraFruta and Teycer Originals Prime Elite join Textar DPA as the latest products in its extensive lineup of postharvest solutions for the U.S. apple industry.

AgroFresh-logoCeraFruta, a biofungicide approved for organic use, has proven efficacy against a broad spectrum of post-harvest fruit decays thanks to its unique, patented formulation of Natamycin, a naturally occurring molecule derived from soil bacteria with a unique mode of action. This product has been used within the food industry for four decades with no known cases of resistance.

Teycer Originals Prime Elite is a new apple coating approved for organic use that helps apples stay more firm, smooth and shiny compared to conventional coatings. The coating integrity remains smooth, without significant whitening, contact-point issues or notable loss of gloss regardless of dilution rate.

Textar DPA is a trusted scald and CO2 injury inhibitor containing 40% Diphenylamine. Its versatile formulation can be used both for fogging and drenching. For fogging, it is applied using the AgroFresh ActiMist technology. Textar DPA can simultaneously be applied with SmartFresh for fast, controlled atmosphere establishment to avoid excess of CO2.
