People are very busy these days and appreciate it when farmers take this into account and offer them prepared, conveniently packaged products. This allows them to prepare and consume fruit, vegetables or other products more quickly and saves them valuable time for their daily commitments.
Dividing food into smaller mixed packs
Packaging fruit and vegetables into individual portions allows shoppers to eat a tasty snack-sized portion of pineapple, baby carrots, cherry tomatoes or apple slices - or soup vegetables for their evening meal. Reusable mash bags can also be used as they allow air circulation and are perfect for produce such as onions, garlic or avocados.
