Softripe®  – the new quality of fruit ripening

Softripe is a German-Brazilian innovation and stands for a novel technology for the ripening of tropical fruits, which allows a significant improvement of the respective fruit quality compared to conventional processes. The patented Softripe technology significantly improves the fruit characteristics that are important for the consumer, e.g. taste (typical aromas), shelf life and the uniform degree of ripeness of the fruit. At the same time energy is saved as the ripening process is faster but also more controlled.

The Softripe-technology is protected by granted international patents and further application procedures are underway.


What makes the difference?

The advantages of Softripe are even more far-reaching.
