USE OF LOW TEMPERATURE IN ORDER TO REDUCE DETERIORARION OF FRESH PRODUCE DURING STORAGE AND SHIPMENT IS QUITE GENERAL

MAIN ISSUES RELATED TO COLD STORAGE & TRANSPORTATION:

  • GEOGRAPHICAL DIFFERENCES: SOUTH/NORTH

  • COOLING TECNIQUES

  • RELATIVE HUMIDITY IN THE COLD ROOMS

  • APPROPRIATE TEMPERATURES

  • LOAD MIXING DURING TRANSPORTATION

  • ETHYLENE REMOVAL FROM COLD ROOMS

ALWAYS EXISTED A TECHNOLOGICAL GAP BETWEEN THE SOUTHERN AND THE NORTHERN PART OF THE COUNTRY

MOST OF THE PACKING-HOUSES IN THE NORTHERN REGIONS APPLY THE MOST ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY AND USE STATE-OF-THE-ART EQUIPMENTS

POSTHARVEST HANDLING OF FRESH PRODUCE IN THE SOUTH IS MORE CRITICAL IN TERMS OF TECHNOLOGY AND (AS A CONSEQUENCE) MARKETING STRATEGIES

  • ROOM-COOLING IS STILL WIDELY USED

  • COOLING EQUIPMENTS (FORCED-AIR, HYDRO, VACUUM) ARE VERY COMMON (MOSTLY LOCAL MANIFACTURE)

  • SOME WINTER COMMODITIES (ARTICHOKES, CITRUS, BROCCOLI, FENNEL) MAY NOT BE COOLED AT ALL, ESPECIALLY IF INTENDED FOR DOMESTIC MARKETS

  • REFRIGERATED CONTAINERS MIGHT BE LOADED WITH WARM PRODUCT

POORLY DESIGNED REFRIGERATION EQUIPMENTS RESULT IN A TOO-LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY IN THE COLD ROOMS, INCREASING POSTHARVEST LOSSES ESPECIALLY DURING LONG-TERM STORAGE

  • INCREASING USE OF INTERMEDIATE COOLANTS (GLICOLATED WATER, BRINE, ETC.)

  • USE OF HUMIDIFIERS

  • INCREASING USE OF AUTOMATION & MORE SOPHISTICATED SENSORS

MIXED-LOAD COMPATIBILITY IS NOT ALWAYS RESPECTED DURING STORAGE AND/OR SHIPMENT WITH PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED TO:

OPTIMAL TEMPERATURE REQUIREMENTS

ETHYLENE PRODUCTION/SENSITIVITY

EMISSION OF ODORS

VERY OFTEN ROLE OF COMMODITY-PRODUCED ETHYLENE IN PROMOTING RIPENING AND SENESCENCE OF FRESH PRODUCE IS UNDERESTIMATED.

MOST COLD ROOMS ARE NOT EQUIPPED WITH ANY ETHYLENE REMOVAL DEVICE.

CA WAS FIRST USED IN ITALY AT A PRACTICAL LEVEL IN 1959 WITH 2 SMALL INSTALLATIONS FOR A FEW STOREROOMS AND RAPIDLY EXTENDED UNTIL IT EXCEEDED 4 MILLION m3.

(DATA FROM GORINI F.L., 1989)

THIS CAPACITY MAKES UP 40% OF TOTAL COLD ROOM VOLUME IN NORTHERN ITALY, WHERE THE LONG-STORAGE PRODUCTS PREDOMINATE.

AT THE TIME THIS FIGURES REPRESENTED THE HIGHEST CAPACITY IN EUROPE.

CA STORAGE IS EXTENSIVELY USED ON FEW COMODITIES SUCH AS APPLES, PEARS, & KIWIFRUIT

ONLY OCCASIONAL APPLICATIONS ON OTHER COMMODITIES (STONEFRUITS)

MA PACKAGING IS EXTENSIVELY USED ON FRESH-CUTS ONLY.

IT IS RARELY USED ON FRESH PRODUCE, ALTHOUGH THE USE OF HIGHLY PERMEABLE PLASTIC BAGS OR SHRINK- WRAPPERS ARE COMMON FOR SOME VEGETABLES.

MAIN ISSUES RELATED TO CA STORAGE:

  • ROOM TIGHTNESS

  • EQUIPMENT & SYSTEMS

  • COMMODITY REQUIREMENTS

  • COMMERCIAL USE EXTENDED TO COMMODITIES OTHER THAN APPLES, PEARS, & KIWIFRUITS

STOREROOM GAS TIGHTNESS REPRESENTS A PRIORITY ASPECT FOR CA INSTALLATIONS.

SOME OF THE OLDER CA ROOMS ARE NOT ABLE TO EFFICIENTLY MANTAIN ULO CONDITIONS, WHICH FOR APPLES ARE KNOWN TO BE VERY EFFECTIVE FOR SCALD CONTROL.

CARBON DIOXIDE CONTROL IS USUALLY PERFORMED WITH MOLECULAR SIEVES OR ACTIVE-CARBON SCRUBBERS.

WITH CENTRALIZED SYSTEM IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO SETUP AUTOMATED ATMOSPHERE CONTROL.

THIS INDUCED THE USERS TO ADOPT ACTIVE CARBON SCRUBBERS WITH INDIVIDUAL CONTAINERS, EACH SUITABLE FOR THE PURIFICATION OF A SINGLE STOREROOM.

  • PRACTICAL APPLICATION IS ONLY RESTRICTED, OCCASIONALLY, TO A FEW SPECIES

  • LACK OF CONFIDENCE ON EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS

  • TOO SHORT STORAGE TIME

  • LITTLE DIFFERENCE IN STORAGE PROLONGATION

  • LACK OF ECONOMIC ADVANTAGES

  • MAP REPRESENTS A VALID ALTERNATIVE TO CAS FOR MANY OF THESE SPECIES

  • LOWER CAPITAL COSTS

  • FEASIBLE FOR SHORT STORAGE TIME

  • EXTREME FLEXIBILITY IN THE APPLICATION

  • WIDE AVAILABILITY OF PACKING MATERIALS

TABLE GRAPES INDUSTRY REPRESENTS A PECULIAR CASE

EU LEGISLATION ALLOWS POSTHARVEST TREATMENTS WITH SO2, TO REDUCE DECAY AND EXTEND STORAGE LIFE.

GRAPES IS EITHER FUMIGATED IN SPECIAL ENCLOSURE (BONOMI PATENT) OR PACKED WITH “SLOW” RELEASING SO2 PADS/LINERS/POUCHES

  • AMONG ALTERNATIVES TO SO2 AS POSTHARVEST TREATMENT MANY HAVE BEEN REPORTED VERY PROMISING, BUT NONE COMMERCIALLY ADOPTED SO FAR

  • OZONE

  • HIDROGEN PEROXIDE

  • ACETIC ACID

  • CHLORINE

  • ACETALDEHYDE

  • CARBON MONOXIDE

  • IRRADIATION WITH g-RAYS

  • IRRADIATION WITH UV-C

  • ULO CA

USE OF SO2 HAS LONG BEEN A SAFETY ISSUE, AND ITS BANNING IS “ANXIOUSLY” EXPECTED BY MANY CONSUMER AND HEALTH ORGANIZATIONS

SINCE 1985 FDADON NOT CONSIDER IT AS A GRAS PRODUCT

  • POSTHARVEST LIFE LIMITED TO TRANSIT & MARKETING TIME

  • GOOD QUALITY PRODUCT UPON THE MOST FAVORABLE MARKETS
