No more quality claims thanks to vacuum cooling

Floral Daily: Mon 2 Dec 2019
The Ecuadorian freight forwarder EBF Cargo has just acquired a new vacuum cooling machine which is fully operating now. “The process is ultra-fast, in only 20 minutes the process is completed and the flowers ready to go”, says Commercial Manager Patricio Brito.

A vacuum cooling machine cools down the flowers and takes out the undesired humidity of the flowers in a stable way by creating vacuum inside the chamber. Over the last years this technique has been used more often and transporters are becoming more aware of the benefits. Patricio: “Flowers leave with the right temperature and can better endure temperature changes during transportation, thus improving cold chain management. Also the quality of the flowers is preserved and the vase life increases. Plus the risk of botrytis and insects is reduced.”

The machine is located inside their cooler rooms. Vacuum cooling can be used on all types of flowers which need cold chain management i.e roses, carnations, gypsophila, pincushions and more.

Clients of EBF Cargo have started using this process and Patricio says the feedback is great. “Our clients have no quality claims anymore from their own clients. This process is especially useful for clients who send their product to destinations with long transit times and/or a lot of connections in between. It also applies to clients using sea transportation for flowers.”
