Hazel CA™

Keep your produce fresh during long-term storage.
Hazel CA - paired with our easy-to-use application device - quickly fills storage rooms with a protective seal of 1-MCP to improve the quality and shelf life of your produce for up to 9 months.

Hazel CA is a simple, self-deployed alternative to traditional 1-MCP fogging, which empowers users to confidently treat high volumes of fruit within large, sealed spaces.

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.
Toss a Hazel 100 sachet into the box or bin of produce.
The sachet releases 1-MCP into the atmosphere around the produce.
The 1-MCP binds to the produce’s ethylene receptors, creating an atmospheric shield that temporarily delays the aging process.
Every crop reacts differently to ethylene, so we’ve created tailored Hazel 100 sachets to serve the unique needs of each crop.

Breathable Packaging

Allow your produce to breathe easier with packaging that helps balance the oxygen and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere around your fruit and vegetables. When these compounds are properly balanced, your produce stays fresher and more resilient against unexpected temperature changes.
Place a Breatheway membrane over your packaged produce.
A breathable bubble of optimally balanced oxygen and carbon dioxide is formed - adjusting to each crop’s unique breathing rate.
When the temperature increases outside the membrane, Breatheway works to match the produce’s respiration rate - stabilizing the environment to keep your produce fresh.

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.
Insert a Hazel Endure pad into the top and bottom of the storage box, pallet, or reefer.
When the produce is added, the pad creates an atmospheric shield around the crops.
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.
Insert a Hazel Root sachet into the storage box.
This creates an atmospheric shield around your root vegetables.
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.
