|Fruit & Veg SAVERS - Fruit & Veg Saver|
Tesco Innovation Award Winner 2009
Are you fed-up with throwing away fresh produce which was perfectly good only yesterday?
Have you noticed that sometimes your fruit, salads and vegetables last, but then for no apparent reason, often your recently purchased produce just seems to go off quickly?
Ethylene gas. The invisible enemy lurking in your Fridge and store cupboards
Our favourite fruits, vegetables and salads emit ethylene gas as they ripen. Fruit and vegetables are highly sensitive to the presence of even small amounts of ethylene gas.
Then, as they ripen, they too will emit ethylene gas, which then causes more ripening, and more ethylene gas, in a chain-reaction.
Which is why, no sooner than one item has started to become over-ripe, other fruit and vegetables quickly go off too.
Your refrigerator and food storage containers trap the ethylene gas, allowing it to build up to damaging levels. Although it is not hazardous to us, the ethylene gas leads to premature aging and rotting of fresh produce.
With rising food prices, premature aging of fresh produce is a costly waste: Today, the average British family throws away £500 worth of fruit and vegetables per year.
NEW Nanology Fruit & Veg Saver
They're little discs which are completely safe, non-toxic, organic and can be fully re-cycled. Simply place one in each of your fridge drawers, in storage containers, or in the bottom of your fruit bowl and stop throwing out spoiled produce, and start saving money.
Organic ethylene control
For over 20 years, organic farmers and commercial producers have been using natural ethylene-control technology to extend the shelf-life of fruit and vegetables.
Now, with Fruit and Veg Saver that same technology is available in the home, doubling or tripling the storage life of your fresh produce.
