KM PACKAGING HAS FRESH PRODUCE STORAGE IN THE BAG

Supermarket fresh Produce bags may never be the same again – thanks to packaging specialist KM Packaging Services Ltd. The European flexible packaging has introduced Unisold Produce Bagging Systems, exclusively available in the UK from the worldwide specialist in flexible packaging solutions.

The Unisold system has been developed to meet retailer requirements for a high-volume, stronger, environmentally-friendly fresh produce bagging system, alongside consumer calls for a more practical, eco-compatible produce bagging and storage solution that will not only facilitate the efficient spill-free selection of fruit and veg, but crucially help to extend its lifespan in storage.

The Unisold bagging system is manufactured from a renewable, biodegradable source which is not only very strong – resisting splits – but can also be printed to promote a current brand or promotion. This is in stark contrast to many of the current bagging systems available in supermarkets, which can offer a thin, anonymous bag that is too small, often splits and is rarely dispensed singly, leaving nearby produce displays littered with unused plastic.

Available most usually in 6.5 micron thickness – but also 7 or 8 – there are also three different Unisold bag sizes and several types and colours of dispensing units available. The dispenser design encourages the issue of just one reinforced bag at a time, reducing waste and improving hygiene as the customer only touches the bags they need to use. Moreover, the bag film can contain additives to sustain the freshness of the contents, and reduce the ripening process of fruits and vegetables through control of ethylene gas absorption, water vapour and oxygen permeation. The lifespan of fruit and vegetables kept in the bags after purchase can be extended by several days.

KM’s Commercial Director Graham Holding explained: "KM Packaging has always been at the cutting edge of innovation and the Unisold bagging system is yet another example of this. The Unisold solution improves the consumer experience with produce bags and provides much, much more in terms of fresh produce protection and eco-friendly credentials. We are confident that Unisold will revolutionise the way that UK consumers select and store their fresh produce."
