A new mesh sleeve consumer pack designed to minimize onion skin flaking is now available from Owyhee Produce of Nyssa, OR.
In describing the Sleeve Pack, which holds onions in a single column, Owyhee General Manager Shay Myers said the benefits are immediately apparent.
“When it comes to keeping your produce display clean and organized, onions can be one of the hardest to maintain,” Myers said. “Each and every movement causes parts of the flaky onion skin to fall off onto your display, and it's a problem not solely found in the individual onion display but also underneath the typical three-pound mesh bags.
“At Owyhee Produce, we weren’t content with staying with the familiar and looked for a better product to provide for our retailers and, furthermore, their consumers," he said. "We're very excited to announce a new innovative onion packaging option called the Sleeve Pack, which still uses a mesh bag but one that hugs the onions in a side-by-side display that minimizes movement and maximizes cleanliness and organization.”
Myers said retailers will find the Sleeve Pack, which holds two pounds of onions all the same size, makes displaying onions easier with its stackability and its assurance of consistency.
Consumers will also find the Sleeve Pack more convenient, he said.
“The Sleeve Pack offers your consumers great benefits at home... with easy storage and cleanliness,” Myers said. In addition, the slim bag can be knotted for later use, a convenience that the open mesh bags can’t offer.
“The Sleeve Pack is innovative, it looks great, and I anticipate it driving sales,” Myers said. “But the bottom line for me is to get the absolute best product out to my customers. I want to give them an added value to the products they sell to their customers so that they can stand out.”
With a fully operational packaging system in place, Owyhee Produce is looking forward to sending The Sleeve Pack out with the start of 2015.
