Benefits of Plastic Vegetable Bags
A primary reason grocery stores choose this style of food storage over glass or ridged plastic is cost benefits. They can be more environmentally friendly than other packaging options because they use less material and can be repurposed (recycled) around the home. They can also be made using plant-based plastics to help further decrease the adverse effects on our planet.
Plastic vegetable bags are also more hygienic than paper and cardboard packaging because they do not absorb moisture from the products inside or the environment outside, which can lead to mold growth on your food items if left untreated for too long.
Types of Plastic Vegetable Bags
The most common type of plastic vegetable bag is the flat bag. This may be a good option if you’re looking for something more economical. It’s simple to use and can be packed easily by hand or machine.
Flat bags are available in different sizes and thicknesses depending on your needs; some have handles at each end so that customers can easily carry them out of the store without touching items with their hands (which means less contamination).
Another popular style is Wicketed Bags – these tend to cost more than their flat counterparts but offer greater convenience for consumers because there’s less waste involved – the wickets allow foods like lettuce or celery to breathe, keeping everything fresh until they reach home kitchens.
Flat Ploly Bag Size Guide
The most common size is a 12″ x 16″ bag, which is large enough to hold most vegetables and fruits. But they come in a wide range of sizes from 3″ x 3″ for herbs and spices – all the way up to 24×48 for potatoes, onions, and other large vegetables.
Custom-Printed Designs for Local Marketing
Customers are always looking for ways to support their local businesses, and promotional plastic vegetable bags are a great way to do that. The custom design options make it easy to create an appealing package for your brand that customers will love! With eye-catching colors and graphics, these bags can be used in any store or restaurant and at home with fresh produce from the garden or farmers’ market.
Customers like seeing their favorite brands on products they purchase every day; this is especially true when those products are something they regularly use, like vegetables! By offering custom-printed plastic vegetable bags with your company logo, you’ll be able to reach new customers while also creating repeat business from those who already know about you.
What Makes Them Food Safe? The Right Materials
You want to ensure that your bags are made from food-safe plastic. To be considered “food-grade,” a plastic must meet specific standards set by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). Food-grade plastics are often made using low-density polyethylene mixtures, metallocene, and ethylene-vinyl acetate.
The low-density polyethylene mixture is one of the most common types of plastic used in disposable bags because of its strength and durability; it can withstand heat up to 180 degrees. This means it will not lose its physical properties or melt away entirely like other types might if exposed for too long at extreme temperatures.
