The average humidity where fresh products are stored, transported or sold is very low. This causes fruit and vegetables, as well as meat and fish, to rapidly dry out, lose mass and end up as waste earlier.
Dry Misting is inspired by the natural effect of morning mist above fields, which promotes crop growth. By enveloping products in mist, we can create an optimally cool and hydrated microclimate for fresh products. This makes Dry Misting an effective way of reducing food waste. The mist can also help to eliminate the need for plastic packaging.
Supermarkets that use Dry Misting waste an average of 40% fewer bananas and 25% less fruit and vegetables. This means Dry Misting systems used in retail pay for themselves within 1.5 years on average.
