Packaging delicate vegetables such as lettuce or baby greens requires that additional care in weighing and processing in order to deliver the best product possible.
That involves the use of modified atmosphere packaging, as well as additional steps.
Ohlson Packaging’s lettuce packaging systems are designed to move the packaged lettuce very quickly through the vertical bagger, reducing any exposure to the heat produced by the machine itself.
Additionally, the sealer process to form the bottom, back and sides of the bag can be controlled through the choice of film. Some films will be effectively and efficiently sealed at lower heats, reducing any possible residual heat issues causing wilt in the bag.
