Perishables Fumigation

Produce quality relies on effective cold-chain management, from field to consumer. To protect the value of your fruit and other perishables, we perform fumigation within very narrow temperature ranges and with careful handling. Our goal: to help get your product to market without delay or damage, and to protect shelf life.

Log/Lumber Fumigation

We understand the strict requirements of exporting raw wood products. When your logs or wood chips arrive at port, we fumigate the load, then work closely with USDA-APHIS officers to show compliance with international quarantine requirements.
