Even a banana performs better under a little pressure.
With climate-controlled coolers and our brand-new pressurized ripening rooms, we can adjust the rate at which fruit ripens—either retarding or accelerating the process as necessary. Because even a banana performs better under a little (but not too much) pressure.
This kind of control enables us to give our customers the freshest product available while ensuring that wasteful spoilage is minimized.
We currently have 14 ripening rooms amongst our three facilities. Not only can we ripen bananas, we can also ripen avocados, papayas, and mangoes to our customer’s desired specifications.
"Fresh Direct are aggressive. They’re trying to build and grow. They kind of get down and dirty and get in there. Some people just try to maintain relationships with certain customers, and I think they ‘re trying to build and get new customers and grow people. That’s important right now."
General Manager, Western Canada, Sunkist Growers
