AgroFresh Solutions, Inc. announced the launch of ActiMist, a foggable fungicide delivery system, strengthening its industry-leading SmartFresh Quality System. Fludioxonil, marketed as ActiMistFDL will be the first in a family of foggable fungicides added to the existing service platform of SmartFresh™ 1-MCP, Harvista™ for pre-harvest application, and the state-of-the-art AdvanStore™ monitoring technology, combining to provide customers with a comprehensive, unsurpassed food preservation solution.
“ActiMist represents a real industry breakthrough,” said Jordi Ferre, Chief Executive Officer of AgroFresh. “AgroFresh has developed a novel delivery system that is changing how fungicides are applied. By developing fogging technology that puts our equipment right into our customers’ storage room, we simplify logistics, improve fogging performance, and facilitate the simultaneous application of both fungicide and SmartFresh™. This saves our customers time and money compared to common fungicide application processes currently in use. ActiMistFDL is available as we head into the North American apple harvest season, significantly strengthening the value of our SmartFresh™ Quality System. ActiMist is the latest example of how AgroFresh is empowering the food industry with a range of integrated solutions designed to help growers, packers and retailers improve produce freshness and quality for the good of our industry, consumers and planet.”
