OverviewSuggest Edit

At Hazel Tech®, we are passionate about saving food and resources. We are dedicated to solving the problem of food waste in an eco-friendly and sustainable manner. To help conserve our Earth’s precious resources, our multidisciplinary team is innovating, researching, and developing new solutions in the agricultural and horticultural sciences. Our beta product, FruitBrite, uses proprietary nano technology to extend produce shelf life by 100%, reducing shrinkage for produce retailers & consumers. FruitBrite™ is a carton insert that extends the shelf life of ethylene sensitive produce, especially tropical produce varieties and commercial melon cultivars. Another product, Berrybrite™, is a berry flat insert that uses a blend of essential oils to increase the shelf life of berries by up to 3x in cold storage.
