Produce Merchandising Ideas
Some sensitive fruits and vegetables emit a natural gas called ethylene as they ripen. While completely natural and harmless this gas can cause the fruits and vegetables to ripen faster as it builds up. This can lead to spoilage and a short shelf life on your produce displays. Ripening fruit is inevitable but you can delay the process with some helpful produce merchandising tips and housekeeping ideas. First - you should try to keep your produce department well ventilated. Second - produce items that make ethylene should not be displayed next to other fruits and vegetables that are sensitive to ethylene. Bananas, cantaloupe, papayas, avocados, peaches and pears all generate natural ethylene. They should be kept away from broccoli, cabbage, citrus fruits and potatoes which are susceptible to it.
