Banana Packhouse




Information profile @ a Glance
  • Banana, the second largest fruit crop in the world, is recognized to be the fourth most important food crop in terms of gross value. As the largest producer of Banana in the world, India contributes nearly 23% to the total global production.
  • The Integrated Pack House should be able to control the quality of the Banana in the entire supply chain from the farm to the Pack House and then from the Pack House to the markets both domestic and international
  • Unlike most other fruits and vegetables, no U.S. Grade Standards have been established for bananas. Designated grades of U.S. No. 1 and U.S. No. 2 are the result of the major banana companies establishing their own grading standards
  • Bananas, especially, are known to emit ethylene, a ripening agent, during cold room storage. Ethylene levels of greater than 1 part per million (ppm) in the cold room environment accelerate the banana ripening process. If ethylene accumulation can be
    Controlled, the freshness and shelf-life of the fruit can be extended, especially during slower than normal turnover.
