Ripening Chambers to Retain Freshness and Texture of Fruits and vegetables

Ripening Chambers

Ripening chambers ensure that the fruits retain their freshness, texture, and flavour with extended shelf-life. Plus, they help maintain the safety and health benefits by eliminating the use of calcium carbide, a toxic substance traditionally used in ripening. This chemical ripening has been banned under the PFA Rules, 1955 and The Food Safety (Prohibition and Restriction in Sale) Regulations 2011, emphasising the importance of a safe and eco-friendly way of ripening fruits.
