It’s an efficient system, Lee said.

“A lot of comments are we’re saving money with labor, as far as cleaning coolers less frequently,” he said. “Coolers have to be cleaned periodically just to sanitize them. If you’re able to keep mold from growing, that’s a cost saving from the sanitation part.”

Avocado distributors will find the technology works well for them, Lee said.

“It’s just a matter of time before people actually see a return on investment,” he said. “That, in itself, has always been an obstacle in the food business. We’ve taken it to a global marketplace, and they’ve embraced it. We’re scrambling to find new manufacturing locations.”
