SIRANE Southern Africa’s team are exhibiting their range of fruit packaging solutions at Subtrop 2017 – the flagship event for the sub-tropical fruit industry in the region.
The Subtrop Marketing Symposium draws growers, packers, processors and exporters in the subtropical fruit and nut industries – and has been growing year on year as a show.
Stacey Loader, director of Sirane Southern Africa, said: “We’ve had some excellent results in terms of shelf-life extension for sub-tropical fruits using Sirane’s absorbent packaging range.
“Sub-tropical fruits – such as papaya, lychees, mangoes and avocadoes – are often exported vast distances – and so shelf-life is a very important factor in the supply chain.
“Sirane’s absorbent fruit pads, which include ethylene absorbent options and anti-bacterial / anti-microbial options, can make a real difference to shelf-life actually achieved.
“Anyone attending the symposium is welcome to discuss this more on our stand and find out more about how incorporating out fruit packaging products can help your business.”
The Subtrop programme includes a broad range of topics, ranging from the economic outlook of the industry to promotion and an insight into the international trade.
The Subtrop Marketing Symposium takes place on Wednesday, November 8, at the Ingwenyama Conference and Sport Resort, White River, South Africa.
