  1. Forced-Air Ripening & Cooling ContainerCosts and Benefits Ripe.Anywhere.™ and Pre-Cooled, Too™

  2. Ripe.Anywhere.™Forced-Air Cooling Container”It was a modest invention... But it changed a planet”.

  3. How Big is the Problem?` • India wastes 59 Million Tons of fruit & vegetables a year!(India Food News, 12/22/10) • That is 118 Billion Pounds of food (30% of total production). • If produce is worth 50 cents a pound, that is 59 Billion dollars. • At 2,000 pounds per pallet, that is 50 Million pallets. • At 20 pallets per 40-foot container, that is 2,950,000 containers. • Just 1% of the waste, is worth 590 Million dollars. • In India it is estimated that about 60 percent of the value of agricultural output is lost between the farm and market. • China currently accounts for 13 percent of global fruit production and 40 percent of the world’s vegetable output, and again, at least 30% of the crop, and more than 50% of the value, are lost due to inadequate cold chain.

  4. How Can Mobile Pre-Coolers Help? • Each container can pre-cool 15 pallets per day, at 1,000 pounds per pallet. • 100 forced-air containers, pre-cool 1,500 pallets per day. • 365 days per year, they can pre-cool 547,500 pallets per year. • They can pre-cool 547,500,000 pounds per year. • At 50 cents per pound produce value, with reducing the 30% waste to 5%, that is a savings of $68,437,500 in crop value. • A container costs $2,820/month, for lease, hours, and power. • Cost $33,840/year for one, $3,384,000/year for all 100. • ROI is 2022%!!! • To pre-cool 15% of the produce, at 1,000 pounds per pallet, 15 pallets per day, 365 days a year, India needs 10,776 forced air containers, plus probably an equal amount for ripening.

  5. Maximizing Profits of Fresh Fruit and Vegetables • Fast precooling preserves salable weight, protects quality, increases shelf life • The export markets demand proper precooling • Fast, uniform precooling increases food safety

  6. Hurdles to traditional precooling or ripening • Need is seasonal, 3 months a year • Capital costs are high • Balance sheet negatively impacted by capital outlays and/or debt

  7. The Solution – Forced Air Cooling Container • Portable • Can lease by season and needs • Scales easily • Balance sheet enhanced by “pay as you go” • Best forced-air performance of any design

  8. How It Works • Please contact us for WebEx presentation. • Phone: 1-610-248-9800 • eMail: Solutions@PreCoolers.net

  9. Notice • This design is Patent-Pending. • We will protect our rights to inventorship and ownership of this design, to the full extent of the law. • Viewers are cautioned, we judge this design as being extremely valuable, and are cold serious about protecting our rights.

  10. Ripe.Anywhere.™Forced-Air Container Costs • $1,500 monthly lease • $1 per hour compressor runtime • 15 cents per kwh power cost • Plus optional extras

  11. Forced-Air Container Costs - Continued • If operates 25 days per month • $60 daily lease

  12. Ripe.Anywhere.™Precooling capacity – example bell peppers • 5 pallets per load • 1,000 pounds per pallet • Temp in: 90F…Temp out: 50F • Half-cooling time 2 hours • 7/8ths cooling time 6 hours • Loads per day 3

  13. Precooling capacity – example bell peppers - Continued • 20 hours per day run time • $20 per day compressor run time • $24 per day electricity (8 kw @ 15 cents/kWh) • $104 per day total costs • 15 pallets per day • 15,000 pounds peppers per day • $6.93 per pallet • 7/10ths of 1 cent per pound

  14. Precooling – Payback Analysis • 7/10ths of 1 cent a pound • 1,000 pounds per pallet • Assume crop value of 50 cents a pound • If we can increase yield by just 2%, we increase profits for the grower/packer. • If we increase yield by 15%, the ROI is $75 / $7, or 1071%.

  15. Ripe.Anywhere.™Ripening capacity – example bananas • 10 pallet capacity • 1800 pounds per pallet • 18000 pounds per load • 3 day ripening cycle (can load and gas hot) • 8 hours per day compressor run time • 24 hours per day pressure fan run time

  16. Ripening capacity – example bananas - Continued • 25 days per month usage • $60 per day lease • $8 per day compressor run time • $17 per day electricity (5 kw for 8 hours and 3 kw for 24 hours @ 15 cents/kWh) • $85 per day total costs • $255 per 3 day ripening • 57 cents per box ripening cost • 1.4 cents per pound, plus ethylene

  17. Ripe.Anywhere.™Other Benefits • No construction permits • Short term leases available (3 month minimum) • Can be located outdoors (no building floor space lost) • Can be used for ripening and precooling

  18. Ripe.Anywhere.™Options • Genset • Reversing airflow for faster precooling • 40 HP compressor and cooling coil • Humidifier • Ethylene Generator • Remote PC software and SMS alarms
