The production of citrus fruit for the fresh sale and processing centre is an important industry in india. The loss is mainly due to the storage life caused by rapid ripening of fruit attacks by the micro-organism. Scientific packaging and storage of citrus reduces the post harvest losses and marketing costs substantially, which enables the producer to fetch a competitive price. Fresh lime juice could not be stored for more than one week due to in perishable nature. In order to extend the storage life there are different methods and technique by using different chemical preservative such as potassium meta-bi-sulphite, sodium benzoate etc. Sodium benzoate is more effective against bacteria, yeast and moulds.
