Is special packaging necessary in order to use FOOD freshly® products?

We don’t recommend special packaging in most cases since our products typically achieve target shelf-life. Furthermore, we don’t want our customers to incur additional costs by using special packaging.


Do I need a sanitizer for correct application?

Sanitizers play an important role in fresh-cut processing. Since their use is not permitted everywhere, we try to achieve target shelf-life and food safety by solely using our Freshness Retainers. However, the use of an additional sanitizer may be beneficial in some cases.


Does the use of FOOD freshly® products have to be declared on the final label?

This depends on your individual process and the food legislation applicable in your country/region. Our experts will gladly guide you through this topic with regards to your specific situation.

We are able to deliver across Europe within 3-10 business days. Asia, South America and Australia can be reached within 2-4 weeks. For shipping times in the US, Canada and Mexico please ask our colleagues at FOOD freshly North America.


Can I use the prepared solution on different fruits/vegetables?

Yes, as long as the FOOD freshly® product is specified for the desired fruits/vegetables.


How long can I use the solution?

We recommend to discard the solution after 8-10 hours since bacteria from treated fresh-cut products may grow in the solution overnight. However, there are technical methods available that preserve the solution by for example pasteurizing or filtering. Please contact us if such a solution may be of interest..
