Freeland also collaborates with Peakfresh, a revolutionary
packaging type that increases the shelf-life of vegetables and
fruits considerably. The Peakfresh-technique is about adding
minerals to the packaging. These minerals adjust themselves
to the product that is inside the packaging. Peakfresh is suitable
for almost all kinds of vegetables. We have the exclusive
right to apply this innovative packaging in Europe, and mainly
use it for lettuce and lettuce-products.
For example, by using Peakfresh, iceberg lettuce can be kept
fresh for 40 days. This offers great opportunities, mainly
concerning exportation to far destinations: it enables cheaper
and more sustainable forms of transportation. This saves a
considerable amount of money, and it benefits the environment.
