HELLAGRO offers a wide range of plastic bags, especially for fruit and vegetables.

Plastic bags (made of polyethylene, polypropylene or polyamide film) are the primary micro-packing material for fruit and vegetables. Besides the very low cost, automated systems further reduce packaging costs, as it happens with net bags.

Plastic bags are transparent, allowing comfortable control of their content, and easily amenable to high-quality printing.

Plastic bags are available in a range of thicknesses and qualities and can be manufactured so as to control the formulation of gases in the packaging. The plastic modified-atmosphere bags “breathe” with a rate such as to maintain the proper mixture of oxygen, carbon dioxide and water vapors in the bag. Since every fresh product has its own specifications for gas atmosphere, modified-atmosphere packaging materials are currently available for each of them. Scientific research has shown that the life cycle of fresh products is lengthened significantly due to the packaging method. The explosive growth of early cut fruits and vegetables is partially due to modified-atmosphere packaging.
