Fourteen-Day Shelf Life for Fresh Fruits and Vegetables

Hefestus Ltd., Israel, will launch a novel comprehensive solution for fresh-cut fruit and vegetable packaging at Fruit Logistic, Berlin, February 4-6, 2009.

Hefestus will exhibit the SLB™ technology that enables manufacturers to pack fresh-cut fruit & vegetables and extends shelf life up to fourteen days. The innovative system allows manufacturers and marketers to transport fresh-cut products to distant destinations. This can revolutionize the entire supply chain, from manufacturer to consumer via fewer returns or discards, lower cost and satisfied consumers.

Hefestus will feature Hera, the world's fastest packaging machine can pack fresh products with SLB™ packaging (MAP) technology at a rate of 1,200 units per hour.

Hefestus also will feature a multiple packaging solution contributing to increased shelf-life (up to 21 days) for ready-to-eat pomegranates. It is the first and ultimate pomegranate technology, providing a full solution, from a whole fruit to separated arils packed in ready-to eat trays, or arils ready for extraction of juice.

Hefestus, Ltd., is a developer and manufacturer of top-sealing packaging machines. Hefestus specializes in supplying unique and complete packaging solutions by providing a wide variety of standard and custom-made machines, to meet the complex packaging requirements of processors and consumers alike.
