Greenbean Scientific

Greenbean can provide advice on all aspects of pre and postharvest horticultural systems and our goal is to help growers reduce waste and deliver fresh, high quality produce to market efficiently.

We understand the benefits that best in class preharvest practices and correct varietal selection can have on growers in terms of increasing yield, reducing wastage, building customer confidence and creating and maintaining a sustainable business. At your request, or as part of a postharvest project our team will assess these activities to ensure that there is a full understanding of the issues you face and where improvements are possible. We take an holistic view and our logical and structured approach, starting with preharvest and extending through postharvest operations provides solutions which are both comprehensive and cost effective.

Our key specialism is postharvest systems and to support and improve your business we can undertake projects and offer advice in the following key business areas:

  • Preharvest advice
  • Harvesting techniques and field handling
  • Packhouse and Processing
  • Storage
  • Transportation
