ProFresh VentilatedFilm

With Australia’s citrus season ramping-up over the coming months, ProFresh Systems is fielding strong interest in its new ventilated pallet film from packhouses across the country.

The 100 per cent recyclable film offers 60 per cent airflow to the palleted product, allowing citrus to be cooled quickly, while also preventing condensation build-up on cartons.

“We have been discussing with a number of our growers and exporters what issues they were having with their packaging,” said ProFresh Systems’ managing director Saul Windiate. “A number of them have had issues around condensation build-up on the traditional stretch wrap film which causes boxes to collapse and other quality issues.”

Windiate said interest in the product has soared since its launch in March, with its versatility a key selling point. “So far we have been overwhelmed by interest from growers of avocados, mangos and citrus, along with wholesalers in Brisbane and food providors,” he explained.“They are pleased to find there is a more economical solution to using cardboard corners and strapping whilst maintaining the integrity of their pallets during transport.”
