SMART quality preservation and insect protection of Rice
Rice is subject to quality degradation during storage and transport. Packaging the grain in the Oxy-Low SMART liner contributes to minimize losses in head yield, broken kernels, insect infestation and aerobic mould growth. The complete Oxy-Low system, including packaging equipment and complementary oxygen-barrier SMART liners, packs the rice under modified atmosphere conditions. The system is available for various product and packaging specifications. From big bags and pallets to smaller consumer bags.
Quality preservation and extended shelf life
Our packaging system helps to improve the head yield of the rice and reduce the number of broken kernels. The low oxygen conditions and constant moisture level inside the packaging inhibit the generation of moulds. The packaging supports an extended shelf life and thereby contributes in reducing product spoilage and returns.
Protection against insect infestation
The Oxy-Low system offers an alternative to chemical warehouse fumigation and protects the product against insect (re-)infestation. The low oxygen conditions inside the packaging support insect mortality whilst the hermetic sealing protects the rice from insect (re-)infestation. The need to fumigate a shipping container or warehouse is no longer necessary. Expensive cold storage can also be eliminated.
