A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11820576B2) discloses a unique container designed for holding produce with a ventilation system specifically for ethylene gas emitted by the produce. The container features a bottom portion with at least one sidewall extending upwards, a rim portion near the top, and a cover to enclose the cavity. The sidewall includes an indentation with a surface that extends into the cavity and has an aperture for fluid communication with the exterior, allowing the ethylene gas to escape, thereby reducing the gas concentration within the container. The design aims to minimize the natural emission of ethylene gas from the produce, enhancing its freshness and shelf life.

Furthermore, the patent includes various claims detailing specific features of the container, such as the orientation of the indentation surface, the shape of the aperture (oval, oblong, curved, quarter moon-shaped, etc.), and the dimensions of the aperture. The container also includes soft geometrical edges within the indentation to prevent damage to the produce. The unique design of the container ensures efficient ventilation for ethylene gas, maintaining optimal conditions for the stored produce. With a focus on minimizing ethylene gas concentration, the container offers a practical solution for preserving the freshness and quality of the produce, ultimately benefiting consumers and retailers alike.
