Over 30% of produce harvested is never consumed.
This means that all of the resources: time, energy, money, water put into cultivating this produce is also wasted.
This produce waste does not occur at one discrete point in the supply chain.
At Hazel Technologies, we develop new solutions to mitigate this waste in order to improve the efficiency of our fresh produce supply chain.
At Hazel Technologies LLC we have developed two primary products:
FruitBrite™ is a carton insert that extends the shelf life of ethylene sensitive produce.
Berrybrite™ is a berry clamshell insert that uses a blend of essential oils to increase the shelf life of berries by up to 3x in cold storage.
BerryBrite™ is currently available for purchase. For more information, click the button below.
Potential to reduce shrink by up to 40%
USDA funded technology
Promotes food security globally
Our active ingredients utilize natural chemical processes to keep produce fresher for longer than previously possible. Fruitbrite™ has the potential to be used in conjunction with cold chain technology or as a more affordable stand alone product.
A robust IP portfolio protects the innovations of Hazel Technologies. Our active ingredients are approved to be used on food products, can be used on organic produce, and do not need to touch produce to be effective.
As the global food and natural resource crunch increases, we are designing FruitBrite™ to preserve produce and reduce waste in many different environments. Fruitbrite™ has the potential to be impactful in 3rd world countries and global supply chains alike.
