We are Restrain

Restrain is the manufacturer of a unique generator that converts ethanol to ethylene gas for post-harvest sprout control in onions and potatoes. Restrain also offers a treatment for seed potatoes that increases stem count, yield and promotes an even size distribution.

Who we are?

Our story begins in 1999, when we set out to find a safe and effective way to prevent sprouting in potatoes. Our research led us to conduct trials with ethylene. With the success of those trials, the Restrain company was born. Since then, the Restrain system has been used to treat more than one million tonnes of seed, table and processing potatoes in 38 countries worldwide. Restrain is the natural replacement for CIPC in potato storages.

What we do?

With proven sprout control in potatoes, Restrain began testing the system with other crops. Today, Restrain is used across the world in diverse sectors including seed potatoes and onion storage. Restrain can also be used for ripening in tomatoes, bell peppers and bananas.
