AgroFresh experts will highlight recent advancements and a wide range of innovative freshness solutions during the show, including:

  • SmartFresh™ Quality System – AgroFresh revolutionized the apple industry 20 years ago with SmartFresh products, the original and industry leading trusted brand of 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) ethylene management technology. In addition to keeping produce fresher longer, SmartFresh products can help save energy. Recent studies demonstrate that the combined use of SmartFresh products and controlled atmosphere storage can save up to 7,500 kWh during a six-month period, resulting in a 36 percent overall energy savings.
  • FreshCloud™ – FreshCloud is AgroFresh’s integrated cloud-based platform that digitizes the formerly manual quality control process by capturing, organizing and analyzing quality metrics for growers, working with their existing technology to make real-time data accessible and actionable.
  • VitaFresh™ Botanicals Life Select – AgroFresh recently launched this organic plant-based coating that helps keep produce fresh longer and reduces food loss and waste. The new product is organic, certified by CAAE and OMRI listed. This solution just received the vegan certification, or V-Label, by the European Vegetarian Union (EVU).
  • FreshStart™ – These new organic (CAAE certified) disinfectants are indispensable for water recycling systems, and work as a complement to fungicides for optimal rot control.
  • Harvista™ – AgroFresh’s near-harvest solution, Harvista helps growers control how and when fruit ripens, extending the harvest window and allowing them to adjust to unexpected weather conditions, climate changes and labor availability. In 2022, Harvista was approved via emergency permit for use in several European countries, and it is also available in other regions including South Africa, Israel, Turkey, United States, Canada, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Australia and New Zealand.
