Fresh vegetable box is a box including a gas control device, uses of the principle of controlled atmosphere to keep fresh vegetable effect. In the preservation process, the fresh vegetable box can not be so easy to obtain uniform velocity field because the parameters of the box have different effects, and it will affect final preservation effect of fresh vegetable box. In this paper, a fresh vegetable box based on multiporosity material was recommended. 5 different cases were candidated and analyzed for investigating the effect of the property of the multiporosity material. The analysis results show that the property has an important effect to final velocity uniformity. The developed product and method can be used to develop a high performance fresh vegetable box.
