Our Rotterdam-based company is driven by a passion to reduce fruit waste on a global scale and making sure more fruit reaches the shelfs of the supermarket.
It is not an unknown problem: keeping the temperature of fruit optimal during sea transport is a challenge. The fruit export industry is plagued by claims that fruit loses its quality along the way due to an incorrect temperature...
Help us in our mission to reduce fruit waste on a global scale, one container at the time.
The problem comes from an uneven distribution of cold air inside the reefer container. The cold air from the cooling unit does not reach all corners of the container resulting in hot spots. These hot spots increase the respiration rate of the fruit.
In 2016, the University of Wageningen performed several tests to prove once and for all what works best to improve the airflow inside containers. “The form that turned out to be the most favourable, is the one now used by Otflow”.
