Burlington, Ont.-based EarthFresh has switched its packaging to biobased material, the international produce company, says in a news release on June 22. The switch was made based on consumer demand for environmentally responsible and sustainable products.
“The mesh in these new bags is derived from a highly renewable resource and is 100% recyclable. We are excited to bring sustainable products to the market,” Jessica Hughes, director of innovation at EarthFresh, says in the news release.
The EarthFresh 1.5 lb Organic Mixed Baby Potatoes, 1 lb Organic Baby Sweet Potatoes and 1.5 lb Baby Sweet Potatoes are now all wrapped in biobased mesh packaging, the release says.
