Delayed Aging Technology.

As produce ages, it begins releasing a natural gas called ethylene. And when crops absorb ethylene, their rate of decay is expedited. 1-MCP is an active ingredient that can be used to reduce ethylene's production and absorption, slowing down the aging process.
1
Toss a Hazel 100 sachet into the box or bin of produce.
2
The sachet releases 1-MCP into the atmosphere around the produce.
3
The 1-MCP binds to the produce’s ethylene receptors, creating an atmospheric shield that temporarily delays the aging process.
4
Every crop reacts differently to ethylene, so we’ve created tailored Hazel 100 sachets to serve the unique needs of each crop.

Smart MAP technology.

Allow your produce to breathe easier with packaging that helps balance the oxygen and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere around your fruit and vegetables for better quality produce with more resilience against unexpected temperature changes.
1
Smart MAP membrane lets O2 pass freely through and expels CO2.
2
Place a Hazel Breatheway membrane over packaged produce.
3
The produce within the packaging maintains beneficial, balanced atmospheres during transit.
4
When temperatures increase outside the packaging, the Breatheway membrane adjusts to accommodate the increased produce respiration.

Anti-fungal Technology

For some produce, like grapes and berries, fungus spores are the leading cause of decay and spoiling. Using an anti-fungal pad can extend the shelf life and quality of your crops.
1
Insert a Hazel Endure pad into the top and bottom of the storage box, pallet, or reefer.
2
When the produce is added, the pad creates an atmospheric shield around the crops.
3
The shield is made up of a 100% organic blend of essential oils that delay the growth of fungal spores - extending the shelf life of your produce.

Anti-sprouting Technology

For root vegetables - like potatoes - sprouting is often the first sign of spoiling. But you can slow down sprouting to keep your veggies fresh longer.
1
Insert a Hazel Root sachet into the storage box.
2
This creates an atmospheric shield around your root vegetables.
3
The shield is made up of a 100% organic blend of essential oils that slows down the sprouting process - keeping your everything inside the shield fresh longer.
Hazel 100™

How It Works

Hazel 100 comes in two sizes and over 15 crop-specific formulations.

Once "applied" or tossed into the box or bin of the harvested crop, Hazel 100 immediately beings emitting a controlled, slow release of 1-MCP gas, which continuously blocks the emission and absorption of  ethylene receptors on the surface of your produce.

Through the simple application of Hazel 100, crops stay fresh, maintain firmness, and retain color for +40% longer - all while remaining EPA residue exempt.

Smart MAP technology.

Allow your fruit to breathe easy with active, responsive MAP technology. Each fruit and vegetable exhibits a unique respiration rate.

Breatheway customizes its crop-specific Temperature Switch membranes to match the permeability (or permeation rate) with the specific respiration rate of the produce. This alignment ensures that the packaging can adapt to changes in respiration rates, enhancing its ability to regulate the balance of natural gases absorbed and released through its barrier.

When carbon dioxide levels spike within produce packaging, Breatheway’s Temperature Switch Technology Membrane activates. Swiftly expelling excess CO2 through its permeable barrier and absorbing O2, Breatheway stabilizes the packaging atmosphere to optimal levels before decay can begin.

Want to extend the shelf life of your crop?

The active ingredient in Hazel 100 is 1-MCP, a widely used chemical compound that helps prevent early decay in various types of produce. 1-MCP works to inhibit the harmful natural hormone, ethylene, by binding to the fruit’s ethylene receptors and slows down aging. This process extends the produce’s freshness and shelf life.

I heard about Hazel through our lime supplier, London Fruit. We started adding their product, Hazel 100, to our limes, and it’s really helped us with the shelf life for our retail customers. Since we’ve been using it, I don’t think we’ve had any problems, but if we have had any problems, it was very minor. I think it is a win-win for everybody.

Once we understood Hazel 100 and its influence on different fruits as they ripen, we were able to determine how to simulate storage and shipping conditions for multiple tropical fruit and figured out how to maximize Hazel and its shelf-life extension capabilities. We look forward to continuing our research with Hazel Technologies and seeing what other forms of food waste prevention they create in the future.
