Biofresh is the market-leader in ethical food storage. Our innovative atmosphere control systems are improving the quality and marketability of fresh produce worldwide.

The Biofresh brand was acquired in 2011 by Freshpallet Limited, also based in the North-East of England.

Biofresh Ozone Management Systems use natural ozone gas to inhibit microbial spoilage in a wide variety of fruit and vegetables. Like ethylene consumer confidence is reinforced by the absence of chemical residues.

Biofresh Ethylene Management Systems use natural ethylene gas to suppress the sprouting process, the main cause of potato spoilage. Even better, they increase consumer confidence by leaving none of the harmful residues of chemical treatments such as CIPC.

Our systems provide you with a reliable, easy to use and cost effective way to extend the life of fresh produce throughout the supply chain. Many growers, wholesalers, distributors and retailers are now reducing wastage, increasing their profits and improving their ethical credentials thanks to biofresh.
