PACKAGING FORMATS FOR STONE AND POME FRUIT


Moelich, D.H & Taylor, M., 2012, ‘Packaging formats for the stone and pome fruit’, SA Fruit Journal 11(3), 55-59.

Description

Packaging is a necessity in the modern economy. In addition to the regular demands by trade and society upon packaging to satisfy convenience, identification, marketing, safety and efficiency requirements, packaging plays a crucial role in the maintenance of quality of perishable products, during storage and distribution. When fresh fruit is packed for long distance shipping and for the extended storage periods associated with export, the optimisation of packaging for each fruit type and cultivar becomes important.
