Fruit and vegetables are essential for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. They form the bulk of the weekly shopping trip. But to get the very best return and maximise your profits, you need the perfect packing solutions.

Optimal freshness and maximum shelf life

To keep fruit and vegetables looking and tasting as fresh as possible, for as long as possible, our E-MAP packaging keeps oxygen levels at an optimum of 2-6%.
