30 stores (8 of which were built this year) are of the new Generation Ultra – Low Oxygen – System called DCA/CF ( Dynamic Controlled Atmosphere / Chlorophyll Fluorescence)
This system monitors the condition of the fruit & from this information we set the atmosphere & temperature to optimise the storage life of the fruit within the store.
Storage conditions are monitored twice a day, 365 days of the year & fruit within each store is regularly sampled every month to check on performance of each variety, store & orchard.
