SYM Fresh is a brand new product from Symphony Environmental. ( check out SYM Fresh Brochure)
For 25 years, Symphony has been providing customers with scientifically proven technological solutions to food packaging and other health and environmental concerns.
SYM Fresh bags are made with our d2p ethylene adsorber technology, developed to reduce spoilage of fresh fruit and vegetables (which continue to ripen after they have been picked). SYM Fresh bags are able to trap the ethylene inside the film, delaying ripening and regulating moisture to slow the drying process and preserve the nutritional qualities, crispness and flavour of the produce.
Did you know?
Several types of fruit and vegetables continue to ripen after being picked, these fruits and vegetables are called climacteric*. Climacteric fruits and vegetables release ethylene gas which cause the produce to continue to mature. This maturation can alter the colour and texture of the produce, shortening the shelf life.
Examples of climacteric fruits and vegetables:
Apple, apricot, asparagus, avocado, banana, blueberry, broccoli, cabbage, cantaloupe, carrot, celery, cucumber, ﬁgs, fresh herbs, guava, kiwi, leek, lettuce, mango, mushrooms, nectarine, papaya, passion fruit, peach, pear, peppers, plantain, plum, tomatoes and zucchini.
How does it work?
SYM Fresh bags have a microporous film structure which will adsorb and trap ethylene inside the film. This effectively delays ripening and regulates moisture to slow down the drying out process, helping to extend the shelf life and conserving the nutritional qualities, crispness and flavour.
How long will the bag keep my fruit or vegetables fresh?
Everything depends on the freshness of the produce and its sensitivity to ethylene.
Ease to Use
Place only one type of fruit or vegetable in each bag. The produce must not be wet. Close the bag by pushing together the seal strip at the top to lock out the air.
Scientifically proven technology*
SYM bags can be reused multiple times. Just rinse the used bag, let it dry and fill it again with new produce.
Both the bags and the packaging can be recycled (please follow recycling guidelines in your area).
No Food waste
According to estimates compiled by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), approximately one-third of all food produced in the world is lost or wasted.
Up to 45% of the food wasted consists of fruit and vegetables and in industrialized countries, more than 40% of losses happen at retail and consumer levels.
Don’t be part of the problem – with Sym Fresh bags – you can help to prevent food waste.
This bag can keep your fruit and vegetables crisp’n’fresh for longer
Flexible. Reusable. Recyclable
*Climacteric fruit and vegetables enter a ‘climacteric phase’ after harvest i.e. they continue to ripen. During the ripening process the fruits emit ethylene along with increased rate of respiration.
