Project Description

Poskitts improve shelf life with Ultimate’s ADAPT MAP™ packaging

MH Poskitt Ltd is a family owned farming business that resides in the heart of Yorkshire, specialising in producing root vegetables and supplying into major UK retailers.  Ultimate Packaging have been working closely with Poskitt’s to help them to extend the shelf life, through the use of Ultimate’s very own ADAPT MAP™ packaging.

Poskitts approached Ultimate with the problem that they were struggling to reach expected shelf life, and needed help to make sure they can achieve optimal results. With fresh produce, seasonal changes can have a huge impact on the respiration rate of the product.
