​PEAKfresh is modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) made specifically for fruit and vegetables as well

as cut flowers and plants. With a natural mineral embedded in our products, we are able to modify the
composition of the air surrounding the packaged item in order to extend the initial fresh state of the
product. PEAKfresh has long been used by growers, shippers and retail chains to preserve the
freshness of produce during transit and storage. Most recently, NASA began using PEAKfresh to

extend the life of produce sent to and consumed by the astronauts at the International Space Station. 

   Mature carrots have a long post harvest life of up to 10 months.
   To maintain maximum quality store only for five months. To maintain
   quality, carrots need careful handling following harvest to avoid
   bruising, cutting and breakdown. The true characteristic of a carrot is
   crispness. Carrots lose moisture very quickly resulting in wilting.
   Carrots are ethylene sensitive, and to avoid the development of
   bitterness during storage, it is essential to avoid storage with apples
   and pears and other sources of ethylene gas. Untapped carrots have
   a very short shelf life.

​   Recommended Post Harvest Temperatures
   0ºC (32ºF) 95% -100% humidity.

   Packaging Method:
   Good quality carrots, that have been properly pre-cooled, are packed dry into PEAKfresh carton liners that are folded

   close. The carton should have ventilation holes but not necessarily be waxed. They can also be stored into 1 kg and 2 kg
   bags for domestic and food service use. To avoid chill damage which causes horizontal cracking, do not store carrots
   below – 1ºC (30ºF).
   Storage Temperatures
   0ºC (32ºF) 95% -100% humidity.
