Maglio’s ReadyRipe™ is a reusable and resealable watermelon pouch that naturally keeps watermelon fresh and sweeter for an extended period of time. This innovative solution gives sliced watermelons longer shelf life, naturally enhanced quality, and convenience for today’s busy customers.
Sam Maglio. president and CEO of Maglio Companies launched this gusseted pouch concept for fresh quartered watermelon in 2015 and retailers are getting on board. “The development of the patented pouch took several years and significant field-testing to perfect it. ” Said Maglio. “We wanted to get the technology just right.”
The specially formulated technology of the pouch regulates oxygen, carbon dioxide, and water vapor transmission rates. The natural respiration of the melon creates and enhances the atmospheric environment, resulting in the quartered watermelon staying fresh for a longer period.
