Quality preservation of high value commodities like cocoa and coffee.
Advantage of Hermetic Storage:
Low oxygen and high CO2 atmosphere prevent infestation (mold & insects) and oxidation
Preventing entry of moisture & protection from rodents
Hermetic Storage eliminates the use of pesticides and fumigants making it a sustainable, cost effective green technology
