Coastal View Produce Inc.’s “Stay-Fresh”™ packaging provides our consumers the ability to enjoy a full line of “just-harvested”™ vegetables. Our unique combination of breathable packaging technology results in the freshest flavor possible for a long period of time.
Our “stay-fresh’’™ technology was developed by an effort of international partners to create a unique packaging tool. Our result achieves the ultimate goal of sustaining the shelf life of our ranch grown produce. This technology is analogous to a wine cork. Without a cork, wine turns to vinegar. Packaging produce has the same problem. Without the proper package, produce spoils at an accelerated rate. By limiting the transfer ratio of oxygen, the ageing process is inhibited. We provide two packaging programs all our produce lines – bags and tray packs.
Our tray pack system breathes from all surfaces. This allows our retailers to stack and store product with more flexibility without harming the produce. This particular package extends shelf life up to 21 days and beyond in some cases.
Our breathable bag is designed in a different manner than most bags used by our competitors. Our bag has a breathable membrane and tiny laser perforations on all surfaces and not just the tip of the package. Our “stay-fresh” ™ bag is designed to be stacked on top of other packages and boxes. This will allow safe storage without suffocating the produce, reducing condensation and eliminating gas build up which can lead to a bacterial problem. The placement of a label or the preprinted artwork will not hinder our bags ability to sustain the products shelf life. Our bag product will support up to 14 days of shelf life.
With superior packaging, you are able to provide a fresher, more desirable product to your client. Retailers are able to control inventory better and reduce waste. These benefits all result in higher profits and more importantly – happy customers!
