As the mist evaporates, the humidity rises and the temperature drops naturally. This prevents produce losing moisture and maintains freshness, colour and nutrients for a significantly longer time, without getting wet.
This extremely safe method of extending shelf life is more sustainable than refrigeration as it reduces waste, energy consumption and CO2 emissions.
The system is mounted within the first of several bespoke displays which are designed and crafted locally. Designed by John Gavin of True Output, metal fabrication by Niall Power of Advantage Engineering and woodwork by Sean O’Hare underpinning our ethos of supporting local whenever possible.
This is another step in our drive for sustainability. We are investing in new technologies and innovation to reduce our carbon footprint, increase our sustainability and put great local food centre stage.
We think the collaboration is the perfect complement for the display of fresh vegetables grown by Tom Cleary in Campile, Co Wexford (pictured above) and also by Des & Olive Thorpe on their organic farm outside New Ross.
