An integrated air quality control system included in OPTIMO ensures the perfect ripening environment through the precision control of humidity, temperature, oxygen and carbon dioxide levels. The new standard in turn-key ripening, OPTIMO comes pre-assembled with all of Interko’s latest technological advances, including REVERSO reversible fans which aim to optimise the airflow with minimum energy usage, and increase the ripening consistency.

However Portuguese case is unique one. We’ve seen how demand on ripening solutions is growing dramatically in Portugal moving from “baby” ripening project into mature innovative approach becoming fashionable on international fresh fruits market.
