Research & Development

Decco FullCover

Decco FullCover is an innovative electrostatic application system that permits the application of very low volumes of fruit coatings. It ensures that fruit sensitive to water based coatings, such as kiwis, avocados, berries and plums, can be treated to extend the commercial life, reducing the cost of wastage and increasing the profitability of each harvest.

Decco NaturCover

Decco NaturCover is a formula that contains a base of natural extracts that protects fruit against dehydration and maintains its natural appearance for a long time. It is the ideal coating to maintain the healthy appearance of fruit and the firmness of its pulp. It is expected to be certified shortly for use on organic crops.
