​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. 

   Mesclun is a mixture of different types of lettuce leaves, with
   some    Endive and possibly also edible flowers to give the mix
   some life and color. The lettuce leaves are pulled or ripped into
   “mouthful” size pieces. Using lettuce that has been damaged
   through handling or climate, and where outer leaves can be
   removed and destroyed to leave the heart, contributes to reducing
   waste from produce that does not have a ready retail market
   because of quality

   Recommended Post Harvest Temperatures
   0ºC Post Harvest Humidity 90% to 95%.
   Packaging Method:
   Mesclun needs to be packed dry. Most producers of mesclun prepare the mix without washing the lettuce first and rely
   on the consumer to wash the product prior to consumption. This is acceptable so long as there is not any possibility of
   dirt, grit or foreign matter from the growing medium being present in the mix. If it is necessary to wash the lettuce leaves
   prior to packaging, then we recommend that the leaves be spun dry and kept in a cool room overnight to remove excess
   moisture, prior to the ripping up of the lettuce leaves into the mesclun mix. It is important that any excess moisture is
   removed prior to ripping and packing of the lettuce to overcome the possibility of slime developing on the delicate leaves.
   Pack chilled mix into PEAKfresh bag and fold top closed.
   Storage Temperature:
   Mesclun mix 0ºC (long term storage around 14 days)
   Retail display preferably refrigerated. If unrefrigerated, quality deteriorates rapidly after 10 hours.
