Our specialty: storage of fruits and vegetables
Russia is one of the largest producers of fruits and vegetables all over the world.
In 2016, I produced
3.150.000 tons of potatoes
1.666.000 tons of carrots
2.000.000 tons of onions
3,500,000 tons of cabbage
1.820.000 tons of cucumbers
2.820.000 tons of tomatoes
1.600.000 tons of apples
Unfortunately between 30% -40% of this production is damaged before reaching consumers. Bad harvest practices, poor cooling and storage, leads to the fact that a large volume of production is spoiled and discarded as waste.
Also, among imported products (bananas, citrus fruits, pineapples), 15% -20% is lost as a result of poor storage and transportation conditions.
There are technologies for improving the storage of fruits and vegetables, while losses can be reduced by less than 2%

There are new packaging to preserve the quality of products and to extend the shelf life.
