Washing and disinfecting are essential first steps of post-harvest handling and are vital to help address food safety compliance of fruits. AgroFresh, a global AgTech innovator with four decades of experience as a produce freshness leader, offers a range of detergents and disinfectants in its portfolio. These disinfectants and some detergents have been certified by CAAE Spain for compatibility with organic production in Europe.

DETERGENTS
