TruPick delivers the well understood benefits expected from 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) in a novel, micro-adsorbent technology and is the first gel formulation in water soluble pouches.
TruPick performance has been rigorously evaluated in many of the globally important apple markets and confirmed by private and university researchers as highly effective in maintaining firmness and suppressing ethylene production in both RA (refrigerated air) and CA (controlled atmosphere) storage.
TruPick is a proprietary and patented release system, discovered and developed by Dr. Nazir A. Mir (MirTech, Inc.), an industry leader in the development of novel products and packaging solutions for pre and postharvest ripeness management and distributed by Decco, the world leader in postharvest products and services for fruits and vegetables, now expanding further into storage solutions. MirTech and Decco bring specialized postharvest technical expertise and on-site close in service to assure optimal results.
“We believe that TruPick and other new products in our pipeline and the Decco Worldwide technical, sales and service organization will not only deliver the same well known benefits packers expect from 1-MCP but also unlock value to expand its use to more packers and to more fruit and vegetables as we pursue registrations in all key markets around the world”, says Dr. R. Lynn Oakes, Global Project Manager for Decco Worldwide and General Manager for ESSENTIV.
