Hazel Root™

Anti-sprouting technology to keep your potatoes and root vegetables fresh longer.
Hazel Root™
One sprout can make a potato unmarketable. In efforts to minimize sprouting in root and tuber vegetables, growers are challenged to find organic, long-term storage solutions that maintain the health of their crop, without sending sugar levels too high or too low. Hazel Root is an organic answer to anti-sprouting pesticides like CPIC, and extends the length of time that root vegetables remain sprout free during storage and transit. Just toss a sachet of Hazel Root into the box.

One sprout can make a potato unmarketable.

In efforts to minimize sprouting in root and tuber vegetables, growers are challenged to find organic, long-term storage solutions that maintain the health of their crop, without sending sugar levels too high.

Hazel Root, one of Hazel's latest products in development, intends to serve as an organic answer to anti-sprouting pesticides like CIPC, and extend the length of time root vegetables remain sprout-free during storage and transit. Just toss a sachet of Hazel Root into the box.

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.
