IT STARTED WITH A PROBLEM
The biggest frustration for the food industry is how quickly Avocados go brown and the waste involved.
Avocado is a sensitive fruit and the fruit ripeness is critical for consumption but hard to manage in bulk.
Most frozen products on offer use chemicals, preservatives or additives to overcome the browning issue and prolong the shelf life.
However, the taste, structure and original health benefits of the avocado are all compromised during these processes.
We knew there had to be a better and more natural way ...
WE INVENTED THE SOLUTION
We got to work and developed a patented world-first ‘All Natural’ technology called Natavo™, which solves the issue of avocado browning and is setting a new standard for avocado preservation.
Delivered via the patented Avocado Time Machine, the Natavo™ process effectively switches off the enzyme that causes avocados to go brown.
It’s 100% natural, using only the forces of nature.
This simple but sensational solution solves all the major problems that have been part of the avocado industry’s wish list for decades.
THE ATM WAS CREATED
The Avocado Time Machine (nick named the ATM) was created to deliver the Natavo™ technology ... the Natavo™ IQF Avocado Product it produces has:
Zero chemicals, additives, preservatives or processing aides.
No more browning of the avocado flesh, meaning no guess work and reduced waste.
Up to 10 days refrigerated shelf life, even after the packaging is opened.
Great taste & colour, just like fresh and perfectly ripe avocado.
Maximum food safety with a proven kill step, certified by a leading lab.
All of this is achieved without compromising the outstanding health benefits of the avocado fruit, which are fully retained.
As a result of the process, we can offer you a superior frozen avocado product which is perfect for the food industry.
