AgroFresh partners with Strella

AgroFresh Solutions, which provides cutting-edge technological solutions to reduce food loss and promote sustainable agriculture, recently announced a partnership with Strella, a leading startup and developer of proprietary sensor technology, according to a news release. 

“We are excited to be working together with Strella to expand the reach for this innovative technology and provide our customers with the data and insights they need to help reduce food waste and maintain the quality and freshness of apples and pears as they move through the supply chain,” said Clint Lewis, CEO of AgroFresh. “Our partnership with Strella expands our comprehensive portfolio of postharvest solutions and further supports our customers in their efforts to grow and distribute an abundant supply of sustainable fresh produce around the world.”

Strella’s proprietary sensors collect real-time perishability data on apples and pears while they are in storage, allowing customers to make data-driven inventory decisions to maintain freshness and protect the value of their produce in storage. This technology will complement AgroFresh’s FreshCloud platform, which provides end-to-end data visibility and monitoring of produce quality at all points along the value chain.
