About Highland Fresh

Highland Fresh Technologies, LLC

Highland Fresh is uniquely focused on the fresh produce industry. This is why we develop and offer products that perform well in the packinghouse without eating up expensive equipment.  Our cleaners are specifically designed to attack the sugar and starch left behind on fruit and vegetable packing equipment, and our sanitizers offer broad-spectrum antimicrobial efficacy without the harmful corrosion of chlorine bleach.

Our Mission

Highland Fresh is dedicated to improving arrivals and strengthening food safety and sanitation programs.

About Us

Highland Fresh was established in 2005 when owner, Steve Maxwell realized growers and packers needed help addressing the increasing complexity of quality and food safety challenges impacting their business. Steve called on Frank Kelsey, who was then working as Western Colorado Research Manager with Colorado State University. Frank had over a decade of experience in the produce industry developing products for the postharvest market, which included 2 patents, and numerous publications on produce shelf life and food safety. Frank brought on Walt Shappley, a Navy veteran with extensive operational and logistics experience in the produce industry, and together they introduced novel cleaning and sanitation solutions for both packing lines and produce. Now, the growing team draws on its expertise in plant physiology, plant pathology, food microbiology, operations, logistics, and process automation, providing products and support that deliver results for growers throughout the United States, Mexico and Canada.
