So, growing food is only part of the story….the other part is of course how to get it to our customers with the highest quality and best shelf life.
Over the past 9 months I have tried various packaging for the produce, and have come to the same conclusion as many others…plastic gives the best shelf life, preserving the high quality lasting in your fridge longer…
However, I have found it frustrating sourcing bio-degradable packaging in Australia…there are many packaging solutions available in Europe and America, but the Australian companies seem to not be seeing the opportunity 🙁
Anyhow, I have finally sourced some ziplock bags from a company in Melbourne that are offering a few biodegradable options, Yay!
Lifeforce Foods is committed to using sustainable options where ever available, and recycling where possible…So, for our box customers, if it is easy, please return the waxed veggie boxes to us to re-use.
