About Ecotop

World class fruit ripening systems

Ecotop Ripening Australia offers a ‘best-in-class’ fruit ripening system for the controlled and uniform ripening of exotic fruits such as bananas, avocados, mangos, papayas, kiwis and more. The Ecotop system has been in operation internationally for over 15 years with over a thousand rooms, in multiple countries, for various fruits and varying business topographies successfully commissioned. Clients such as Chiquita, Dole and many more have adopted the Ecotop system worldwide due to its superior ripening quality, low cost operation and unique multi-functional room operation.

Ecotop Ripening Australia was founded by Paul Brady and Steve Oakley in 2018, when they realised a need in the Australian marketplace for improved technology and energy efficiency with ripening rooms in Australia.

In September 2018, the first Ecotop ripening room was built in Melbourne’s South East to demonstrate locally for the first time this leading edge technology, which allows clients to view and test the ripening of Australian fruits, first hand.

Steve and Paul bring together a complimentary partnership of expertise in the construction and refrigeration fields, combining over 60 years of experience in the delivery of temperature controlled environments:
