Reduction of single-use plastics
Single-use plastic reduction
The objective is to remove all single-use plastics from our English cucumbers. Retailers and customers alike are always looking for ways to reduce their plastic use and this was a way we could help.
We use a lot of plastic to wrap our English cucumbers. From one farm alone - we use 8 tons of single-use plastics a year. We're trying to reduce this to 0.
We met a California company, Apeel, at a trade show and decided to form a partnership to try and reduce our single-use plastic use. Using Edipeel, we developed a solution to single-use plastic use on our cucumbers through years of trials.
