There are only a few days left to harvest the conference pears of the Pera de Rincón Protected Designation of Origin. The size, colour and texture are now ready to be harvested and stored in cold storage. From the time the pears are harvested until they reach the consumer, the Rincón pears go through different steps, all the agents involved are very important and have to keep the fruit in the best conditions as it is easy to contaminate it with fungi at any point in the chain.
This is why the fruit warehouses, one of the most important agents, are finalising the last cleaning and disinfection of wood boxes, storage chambers and other facilities. This work is really necessary because the fruit will bea long time in controlled atmosphere chambers until it is distributed and reaches the consumer.
As in other campaigns, Clean-Biotec checks the quality of the disinfection of wood boxes and chambers with routine air and surface controls. The Clean-Biotec team goes to the premises and inspects the different critical points of the warehouse, takes samples with contact plates with specific medium for fungi and cultures them in the laboratory. They then give the results to the warehouse technician who ensures that the crates are ready for picking the conference pear and the chambers are free of fungus for storage.
Clean-Biotec, with its controls, guarantees the quality of the facilities for the collection and storage of fruit, determining the possible fungi that could appear and looking for biological solutions for their treatment.
