The Latest Technology for RIPE NOW!

ProRipe VIP - Utilizes Near Infrared light technology to sort avocados based on maturity/oil content. Each avocado will have like degrees of maturity and ripen at the same rate, thus eliminating shrink by removing consumers’ guesswork out of selecting the perfect avocado.  All of our ripe rooms use the most advanced technology to ripen the freshest avocados. Merchandising avocados has never been easier with Calavo ProRipe NIR sorting; our avocados are always Ripe Now.

Near Infrared Sorting (NIR) - is the latest, most innovative technology for non-destructive measurement of avocado maturity. This technique does not penetrate or harm the fruit in any way. The reflection of light returned from avocados correlates the oil content, giving the ability to sort avocados based on oil content/maturity. Sorting by maturity allows for all of the fruit in each case to ripen evenly.  90% of consumers state that degree of ripeness is a key attribute for purchasing avocados. ProRipe VIP avocados sell as much as 4 to 1 over non-ripe fruit.
