Our wide range of commercial and custom products keep every link of the global perishable supply chain Bluezone fresh for maximum product quality, employee health, and financial return.
Back in 2006, the U.S. Military had difficulty delivering fruits and vegetables to troops overseas due to over-ripening and decay. To solve this problem, the U.S. Military contracted Primaira, a product development company, to design a system that extends the shelf life of fresh produce. Owners of Primaira, Karen Benedek and Phil Carbone, developed Bluezone fresh preservation technology to eliminate ethylene, a naturally occurring plant hormone emitted by many fruits and vegetables that promotes over-ripening. After U.S. Military testing and evaluation, Bluezone units were installed in all American aircraft carriers where they remain to this day. Inspired by the positive impacts of their work, Karen and Phil formed Bluezone Products Inc., a company dedicated to expanding the reach and application of this revolutionary technology.
