It is important to handle vegetables appropriately after harvest and keep them under specific conditions throughout distribution to maintain peak freshness. For pre-packaged vegetables, it is vital that research has been undertaken to ensure the environment inside the bag is optimised for the contents, or there is real potential to speed up, rather than slow down, the break down process.

vitalvegetables® are packed in bags which are specifically designed to maintain a suitable environment for each product mix. Once the bag is opened, the environment inside the bag is lost and the vegetables will begin to lose some of their goodness. Salad greens and vegetable blends should be kept in the refrigerator in the original bag until use.
