Poster summary

The highly perishable strawberry fruit has a short shelf life after harvesting limiting its consumption due to reduced freshness. A suitable packaging condition, proper storage, and carefully tuned atmosphere composition inside the package can preserve the quality and extend the shelf life of perishable fruits. It showed that PLA/montmorillonite Cloisite 20A/Triacetin preserved the quality of the packaged fruits compared to neat PLA and PLA/Triacetin films. Furthermore, the gas mixture of MAP-A was more suitable in comparison to MAP-B. We can conclude that using PLA nanocomposite film with MAP provides a more desirable condition for strawberries storaging at a low temperature.
