Hazel Technologies Partner Dan Andrews Farms Completes Melon Export Campaign

Hazel Technologies collaborates with Dan Andrews Farms to protect exported honeydew melons.

CHICAGO, IL - Hazel Technologies continues to nab new industry partners, this time in the form of Dan Andrews Farms, a grower of premium melons. The campaign focused on the export of honeydew melons incorporating post-harvest quality technology from Hazel Tech.

“Globalization is increasing to levels never seen before, and as Dan and his veteran team can attest to, this trend is growing in the food supply chain as well," said Aidan Mouat, CEO of Hazel Technologies. “As food producers across the world just like Dan Andrews Farms seek to stay competitive in a global market while minimizing waste, we will see even more demand for food quality technologies.”

A small biodegradable packet placed in the box during packing, Hazel™ helps extend the shelf-life of fresh melons and fight costly rejections and food waste following transit in the supply chain, a press release explained.

Following initial testing, the technology received grant funding from the USDA for further development.

“Exporting melons is a high-risk business. Without employing the latest technologies to ensure quality during long transit times that can exceed 28 days, it’s difficult to be consistently successful,” commented Dan Andrews, Owner of Dan Andrews Farms. “Hazel Tech enables us to more confidently export higher volumes with more peace of mind.”

This product’s ease of use makes it a snap to incorporate in the field. Given that fresh melons are traditionally field-packed, post-harvest treatments can be extremely challenging unless the solution is very simple. Dan Andrews Farms employed the technology for its export containers again this year and once more gained positive feedback from import receivers.
