Optimalisatie van verpakking in cold chain van versproducten

24 mei 2017

Corrugated fibreboard boxes (cartons) are used extensively in the cold chain to transport fresh produce from growers to consumers. These ventilated packaging systems have multi-scale structures and should facilitate suitable cooling of produce to preserve quality, protect against mechanical damage and enable efficient handling and transport.
However, current designs often do not incorporate these factors and improved designs have been identified as part of new strategies to reduce postharvest losses and enhance overall cold chain efficiency. For his thesis at Stellenbosch University in South Africa, Tarl Michael Berry developed improved fresh produce packaging designs.
