Fruit & vegetables

Consumer demands for fruit and vegetable packaging are centred around quality and convenience. Consumers expect their produce to look appealing, to be in excellent condition, to taste great and they prefer to use fruits and vegetables directly from the pack.

You eat first with your eyes, then your nose, then your mouth - Old Chinese saying

Various types of fruit and vegetables exhibit individual rotting processes. Some fruit and vegetables benefit from barriers that limit the development of the mould in order to deliver a long shelf life. For others, it is important to utilize barriers that ensure a fruit or vegetable can breath, but at the same time maintain the right humidity around it. This is why careful consideration must be made in terms of the barrier protection to use. Our flexible packaging solutions let you help supermarkets meet consumer demands on fruits and vegetables whilst improving their performance in perishable produce. That is because our packs prolong the shelf life of fruit and vegetables, which substantially cuts down the high rates of food waste.
