Falk Schlusnus (CEO of TFC Holland B.V.) talks about the positive, proven experience with our patented Softripe technology in the special issue of PRIMEUR (36th year , May 2022). Note: Softripe is the only technology in the world that reacts to the needs of the fruit with dynamic parameters during the ripening process. The resulted, almost natural, biological ripening process has, besides energy savings, decisive advantages, such as: - better quality - longer shelf life - less product loss. Falk Schlusnus says in the interview about the Softripe technology, among other things: "It enables us to bring perfectly ripened mangoes and avocados with a significantly longer shelf life to our customers' shelves."
...Board said: “Softripe® now ensures we have a more consistent, superior product and has enabled us to remove the secondary grading from our processes. Along with the reduced ripening cycles, there are clear benefits to producers, distributors, retailers, and consumers.” Prior to Softripe®, over 489 tons of product was wasted by destructive testing during the traditional method of ripening and sampling process...
TFC is convinced that eating ripe mangoes will become the norm. "That is why we have been working with Softripe technology for mangoes for several months," explains Falk. "Our ripeners now achieve edible fruit of consistent, truly excellent quality."
