Fruit & Vegetable Storage

Storing Fruit and Vegetables to Make the Most of Freshness and Flavour

Correct Storage = Best Flavour

Storing your produce correctly is important to maximise taste and quality. Many vegetables are sensitive to ethylene, a gas emitted by many fruit and some vegetables. Ethylene triggers the ripening process and exposure to ethylene also causes vegetable deterioration, therefore fruit and vegetables should be stored separately.


ExtraFresh Helps Keep Your 5+ A Day Fresh

Made in New Zealand, ExtraFresh sachets are designed for fridge produce drawers to help fresh fruit and vegetables stay at their best for longer.
