Brief: garden fresh

A new system involving the direct humidification of vegetables in supermarket displays allows for greater freshness and a more appealing product. A recent study carried out in the US has shown the benefits of such a system: in atomised lettuce, only one out of six lettuce is lost as opposed to five when not. Humidification thus means a longer product life and it also reduces the amount of handling since products can remain on display day and night. Given the varied range of installations, i.e. a choice in the size of the drops, the intensity of the spray, cycle programming, automatic cleaning, etc., each shop can quickly integrate the system which it needs. Axima refrigeration France offers not only this process but also system maintenance including replacement of the filters, checking of the circuits, water checks, etc.
