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.
In addition, hydroponic lettuce requires additional system design features to manage the larger and springier leaves compared to field-grown produce.
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 sealing process to form the bag itself can be controlled through the choice of film. Some films will be effectively sealed at lower heats, reducing any possible wilt in the bag. Modified atmosphere packaging is also important.
We can recommend the right bags, clamshells, or other containers for your product.
