How Does FreshVue™ Work?

Experience the freshest fruit possible with FreshVue™ Ethylene Control systems

Our active ingredient, 1-MCP, is the key to maintaining the natural ripeness of your fruit by slowing down the ethylene-triggered ripening process. By binding to fruit ethylene receptors, 1-MCP prevents ethylene from binding to these same sites, delaying the cascade of ripening-related changes such as pulp softening, starch degradation, skin color changes, and physiological disorders. With FreshVue™, you can enjoy longer-lasting fruit that looks and tastes like it was just picked. By delaying the ethylene response and senescence process, FreshVue™ provides valuable protection that extends the freshness, appeal, and overall eating quality of your fruit. Trust Pace’s FreshVue™ to keep your fruit fresher for longer.

Experience the FreshVue™ Advantage

With FreshVue™ Ethylene Control, you can count with the most advanced, reliable and flexible 1-MCP application available in the market, backed by the experience and technical support of Pace International.


High Quality Products and Application Technology

Not all 1-MCP products available in the market are created the same. The ingredients in Pace’s FreshVue™ Ethylene Control meet the highest quality standards set by the United States, European Union, and other international regulatory agencies. Each batch of the 1-MCP product used in FreshVue is carefully inspected and verified for its content and purity.

Reliable Application Equipment.

With years of experience, the Pace R&D team has introduced improvements to the traditional 1-MCP delivery systems or generators, adding more reliability and flexibility.



Flexibility to match your needs

The FreshVue™ Application Systems allow you to apply 1-MCP from either inside or outside of storage rooms, providing flexibility to cold storage managers. When placed outside of the room, the unit can monitor and control the flow of 1-MCP and is designed to automatically collect a gas sample that is later analyzed to confirm the success of the application.


Full-Service Application

Schedule your hassle-free application and a professional Pace field service team will do it for you within the agreed time range.

Self-Service Application

Apply the product on your own schedule, without having to schedule the application service. This is ideal for customers looking at more cost-effective options by managing application timing and product dosing.


Simple to use

With FreshVue™, the application process becomes effortless regardless of whether it is applied from inside or outside the room. Gone are the days of manually placing numerous sachets per room or pre-filling cartridges to accommodate room capacity. Thanks to FreshVue™ Pods, you can conveniently determine the required number of Pods based on the room size and desired target dose. Simply insert them into the designated FreshVue Generator and activate it – it’s as simple as that.



Helping the environment

By employing the water-soluble FreshVue™ Pods, the sole remnants following an application are water and dissolved sugars, which can be safely discharged into drains or the ground. In contrast to alternative 1-MCP delivery systems, FreshVue eliminates the need for non-recyclable sachets, chemicals, or plastic containers that contribute to landfill waste or require specialized hazardous waste disposal methods.


Pace QVS

Ensuring what you pay for

Leveraging our wealth of experience with 1-MCP systems, FreshVue™ applications can be supported by Pace’s Quality Verification System (QVS) to guarantee the attainment of a successful 1-MCP application.

Factors such as leaky rooms, varying bin materials or room fill ratios, initial ethylene levels, or inadequate release stemming from subpar or faulty 1-MCP delivery systems can all diminish the presence of 1-MCP in the room atmosphere or hinder the fruit’s ability to absorb it, consequently compromising its long-term effectiveness.

Through Pace’s network of seasoned professionals and proprietary gas sampling technology, our QVS can ensure that each room undergoes a thorough treatment by assessing the concentration of 1-MCP in the room subsequent to the completion of the FreshVue™ application.

Typically, the results of this analysis are available on the same or next day, ensuring prompt feedback. In the unlikely event that the 1-MCP application fails to achieve the desired levels of effectiveness, Pace offers a complimentary second application1, exemplifying our commitment to customer satisfaction.
