Simple and innovative, STIX FRESH is a product that extends the shelf-life of fresh produce. The sticker was first launched by Malaysian company, Stimulus Nature Resources in 2016 after 4 years of research and development. STIX FRESH works best on fresh fruit (tropical fruits in particular).

Innovations like STIX FRESH enable produce to stay fresher for longer, thus reducing the amount of waste produced. This is a unique solution in Asia, where transport facilities and weather play a large part in creating food waste. Further, STIX FRESH has a European standard IS EN 14338:2004 certification. In other words, foreign substances will not contaminate the fruit upon the sticker’s usage. 

The Malaysian company Stimulus Nature Resources Sdn. Bhd. has invented a brand new sticker that extends the shelf life of fruit, particularly efficient for tropical fruit.

In an interview by, Mr. Zhafri ZAINUDIN, CEO & Co-Founder notes:

“These stickers have been tested for different fruits and results depend on produce type. So far, best results have been seen on tropical it as mangoes, dragon fruit, star fruit, mangosteen… One of the tests have been made in ambient temperature for a Golden Lily variety of mango. These stickers have extended shelf life by 12 extra days!”
