An innovative fast growing company, Prepworld supply prepared fruit to the UK and Spanish markets. Renowned for their unique berry varieties, Prepworld focus on quality; pushing the standards to supply the supermarkets with the freshest produce each season has to offer.
Ultimate Packaging have teamed up with Prepworld this year to investigate the shelf life of all of their prepared fruit lines. Ultimate’s state of the art ADAPT MAP™ technology monitors the respiration rates throughout the whole life cycle of the product. This will allow Prepworld to analyse and compare the different fresh fruit respiration rates across their range.
The aim of this project is to catalogue the respiration rates of all their product both individual and mixed which will help them to create compatible fruit mixes that have similar reparation rates.
“Our ADAPT MAP™ technology will really help Prepworld to deepen their understanding of their products and will successfully link in with the data base that we hold on site at Ultimate” Lynsey Maddison Technical Supervisor at Ultimate Packaging
This will enable Prepworld to extend the shelf life of their products across several different packaging formats. Ultimate’s ADAPT MAP™ technology tailor makes unique laser perforation patterns from the data that has been collected, this technology controls the exchange of gasses that effect the shelf life of the product.
“Ultimate packaging has been very helpful in lending us the use of their innovation (ADAPT/MAP chamber), sharing years of experience in packaging of food items and analysing the data generated to help us get the best out of our products. Their prompt and friendly service has played an important role in helping us stay on top of our improvement plans and driving our product quality forward.” Firdous Begum, Quality Improvement Technologist at PrepWorld
Ultimate are proud to working alongside Prepworld this year on this project to help develop their packaging, and to get the most out of their product.
