Clear Lam Packaging, Elk Grove Village, IL, provides Del Monte with a reclosable bag for fresh apples that replaces a rigid plastic tray, offering improved portability. The packaging material was developed with specific higher transmission rates for oxygen, making it ideal for a variety of fresh-cut fruits and vegetables. The package combines proprietary processing of the apple slices with hermetic sealing and modified atmosphere to extend the freshness of the product over 16 days. Eliminating pre-made bags and rigid trays reduces manufacturing steps, meaning fewer trucks are used in the processing chain for reduced greenhouse gas emissions. Visit www.projectearthclear.com.
