Sticker extends shelf life of fresh fruit
StixFresh, Kirkland, Wash., developed a new way of helping reduce carbon footprint and foster more responsible stewardship.
The StixFresh sticker is designed to keep fruits fresh for up to two weeks longer. Just apply the sticker to the fruit and let the all-natural compound contained on the sticker create a protective layer around the fruit to increase shelf life.
The StixFresh sticker uses what plants naturally secrete to protect themselves from harmful environmental conditions and applied this formulation to the surface of the sticker. Composed of an all-natural formula of specially sourced beeswax and other natural ingredients, the coating was independently tested and scientifically shown to keep fruits and vegetables fresh for longer.
Highlights of this post-harvest solution include:
- Simple. StixFresh is minimally invasive with no need to inject or coat the fruit with anything. Easily peel-and-place stickers on apples, pears, avocados, dragon fruits, star fruits, kiwis, mangos, oranges and other citrus fruits help keep them firm, sweet and juicy.
- Effective. Through countless comparative tests, results show extended shelf life of fruit for up to 2 weeks.
- Safe. Keep fruit fresh longer without chemicals. StixFresh is made of all-natural ingredients, which meet GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) requirements in accordance with the FDA.
