Do we need these transformed products in this type of #packaging? why supermarkets are selling fruit & vegetable prepared products?
It is a question worth asking when single-use plastic packaging is on the sustainability radar.
It could be related to a healthier food proposal with a transparent material to reinforce consumer freshness perception and attractiveness.
But it could also be for pure #convenience reason for people who will usually not eat this type of product because they are single and will not need a whole pineapple or a water melon nor have the time to prepare it.
if the answer is yes: this type of preparation would be right providing the facts that :
Packaging is #recyclable and easy to recycle: transparent PET responds to this need.
Consumers have access to #waste management system which recovers PET
Other materials, as PS tray should be elimited, as well as fruits which don't need preparation (eg.rasberry in the picture attached).
