200Consumer demand for freshness and convenience food has led to the evolution and increased production of fresh-cut fruits and vegetables. Moreover, this may represent a way to increase the consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables (FFV) and therefore, a benefit for the crops sector economy. Since the increase in convenience for the consumer has a detrimental effect on product quality, attention must be focused on extending shelf-life while maintaining quality. Fresh-cut fruits and vegetables (FFC) are very important to retailers. Quality and range of FFC on offer have a major influence on where customers shop. Packaged salads and pre-cut fruits are occupying more shelf space as they continue to gain acceptance by customers. The latest trend is to combine a range of fruits and/or vegetables into meal packs which are ready for consumption, with varying weight portions to meet the needs of families and individual consumers
