“Our AnsiP-Sticker extends the blossom time by several flowers, and attracted the interest of many visitors’ interests at the CAC exhibition,” says [EV1] Basilio SC Huang of Lytone Enterprise. Their company is dedicated to providing post-harvest solutions to flower industry, and at the CAC they put special emphasis on their 1-MCP technology - the AnsiP-Sticker. “Embedding 1-MCP compounds in the sticker formulation, AnsiP-Sticker manufacture requires a special technique that our local or international competitors have not been able to catch up with,” Lytone explains. “This technology has also already been granted patents in many countries around the world.” Greg Kao, Lytone’s mainland China sales manager, demonstrated the efficacy of AnsiP-Sticker on extending blossom time of lotus flower in CAC, which attracted many visitors’ interests in agency cooperation.

Room for growth in demand for post-harvest solutions
According to Huang, the industry of agricultural chemistry in China is fiercely competitive. Most enterprises prefer to do things by themselves instead of merging, acquisition or via the agency mechanism. In addition, the awareness of post-harvest quality preservation still remains to be strengthened, given that most flowers grown in China are still for domestic consumption. There is room for growth in the demand for a cleaner, safer and more convenient way of post-harvest solution. “From Kunming in Yunnan province, China's largest flower producing area, to Shanghai, Guangzhou or other major cities, the industry still prefers to use sodium thiosulfate (STS) or merely refrigerated transportation to keep the freshness. However, as consumers are more and more concerned about environmental and health issues, we strongly believe that AnsiP-Sticker will be the most suitable solution,” said Kao.
The effect of AnsiP-Sticker on maintaining blossom time attracted visitors’ attention and interest.
The China International Agrochemical & Crop Protection Exhibition (CAC) is an agricultural chemical exposition. It was cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but was held June 22-24, 2021 in Shanghai. “Compared with other international exhibitions in agriculture, it was a breakthrough that physical meetings were able to be held. Via physical face-to-face interaction in the CAC, the trend of next-generation developments in agrochemical industry can be thoroughly observed.”
