FEATURES OF THE FRESHBAG ASPARAGUS
No loss of fresh weight
The storage of water in the FRESHBAG® provides the vegetables with sufficient moisture.
The FRESHBAG® prevents the vegetables from drying out and thus avoids lignification and loss of quality.
Increased flexural strength
Due to the protected storage, the asparagus does not lose its firmness even after several days.
With the FRESHBAG®, the vegetables are safely packed in just a few steps.
For even more flexible handling
The FRESHBAG® sheet for asparagus is perfect for larger quantities of asparagus. Its easy handling allows quick packaging and protects the noble vegetables just as efficiently as the FRESHBAG®. This way, it reaches the end consumer unharmed.
