Keeping your Fruits Fresh

Ethylene absorber packaging solutions

Ever wondered what causes fruits to turn bad despite packing it nicely in the carton? Or why do fruits spoil so much faster in Singapore as compared to other countries?

Ethylene, also known as the aging hormone, is a natural gas released by fruits to aid in their ripening process.

Despite its benefits, ethylene can cause spoilage among fruits when there is an excessive amount being produce – warm climates and stacking of fruits also encourages the release of ethylene gas, resulting in a shorter life span of the fruit.


Oranges are naturally green in color. However, to make it more appealing, producers placed them in an environment with a controlled amount of ethylene gas during harvesting, which changes the color of the fruit. This process is also known as degreening.

How do you prevent over-ripening and prolong the freshness of your fruits?

Pack a sachet of Ethylene Absorber together with your fruits; it’s this simple!
