We wish to introduce our product ALOECOAT for preservation of fresh produce and extension of shelf life. ALOECOAT is an aloe based edible coating which helps fruit and vegetable growers, packers, distributors and e-commerce resellers to protect fresh produce from bacteria and fungi, and to extend shelf life, improving food safety and final consumers satisfaction with total sustainability.
ALOECOAT is a polysaccharide based edible coating manufactured by our company Aloe Eco Park SAPI de CV, located in Sonora, Mexico. This aloe product is a novel technological solution to improve food safety and avoid food waste in the fresh produce sector.
Aloe is very well known for its antibacterial and antifungal protection, validated by hundreds of researchers worldwide. Aloe based edible coatings have many Kill-Step validations showing its excellent performance in food safety. Our product has been validated by North American and European customers since 2015.
ALOECOAT gives a strong protection against bacteria and fungi to fruit and vegetables, and also extends shelf life, because it creates a biofilm all over the surface of each fruit or vegetable.
This technological solution offers several advantages when compared to other post harvest treatment products used in the fresh produce industry. The typical coatings used by industry -mineral, animal or vegetal waxes- only gives brightness and a short shelf life, but no antibacterial or antifungal protection. Modified atmosphere plastic bags offer good protection but are made of a non-renewable resource, are not reusable and must be disposed of with a cost.
Instead, ALOECOAT is totally made from a renewable resource, is 100% biodegradable, totally sustainable and made from a well known plant with many scientifically proven attributes.
The solution ALOECOAT is a new sustainable option to improve Food Safety and avoid waste in the fresh produce business.
Our solution gives several benefits to all members of the supply chain, from growers and packers to distributors, retailers and consumers.
ALOECOAT has one specific formulation for most fruit and vegetables, and it is offered in 20 liter plastic drum, 200 liter (55 gallon) drum and 1000 liter plastic tote.
ALOECOAT is a product made from aloe, one of the most recognized plants on earth.
