Ellepot-USA has been working with Schur A/S, a packaging company, the last eight months on the development of a biodegradable retail bag.
Ellepot’s primary goals have been to produce 1) sustainable packaging that’s biodegradable and 2) will help growers reduce shrink of finished product. Other product development objectives were to:
–Eliminate the need for tag inventory
–Provide a thermal print of the variety at the time of shipping
–Customize a generic bag just before shipping
–Develop a bag bottom that prevents soil from spilling into cars and shopping carts
The retail bag concept will first be presented at IPM Essen 2011 in Essen, Germany, later this month at the Ellegaard booth 3C21 located in hall 3.0.
