Our state-of-the-art chiller plant offers a capacity of 1175kWR of refrigeration at standard conditions. This allows us to rapidly cool up to 750 tonnes of hot product every 24 hours, greatly improving shelf live, and longevity in storage. Both the refrigeration and Controlled Atmosphere plants are remotely monitored and controlled.
Valley Pack is Australia’s first facility to have Dynamic Controlled Atmosphere storage allowing apples and pears to be stored without the use of DPA dip, which is prohibited from use in the EU, Canada, and the USA.
Valley Pack’s cool rooms are fitted with a humidification system, preventing moisture loss in product stored for long periods before it is sent for packing and distribution.
Rapid Heat Removal from fresh produce is a crucial first step in maintaining fruit quality, maximising shelf-life, and minimising shrinkage losses.
At Valley Pack we understand the importance of optimal storage conditions for successful product out turns with long term storage of produce.
A recent development in the long-term storage of apples and pears has been the introduction and development of
Dynamic Controlled Atmosphere Storage (DCA).
