The main objective of the EASYFRUIT project is to extend 3-5 days the shelf life of peeled and cut orange and pinneaple by means of development of an active packaging solution in combination with a conditioning treatment.

The expected results are summarized in:

• Facilitate the marketing of such products by overcoming the inconvenience generated by its short shelf life.
• Improve the quality of those already on the market so as to retain their organoleptic and nutritional properties for longer.
• Facilitate the export and marketing over long distances.
• Provide a new product to consumers who do not currently consume it.
• Encourage the consumption of fruit so highly recommended by the WHO (World Health organization).
• Reduce the waste generated by throwing away expired packaged cut fruits.
