Sage Fruit Company of Yakima, Washington is excited to announce the launch of a new, Earth-friendly pouch bag beginning in June. During the 2021 cherry season, all Sage Fruit bulk, Organic Dark Sweet cherries will be packed in a Bio-Able Solutions bag.
With increased consumer concerns over single-use plastic, as well as a heightened awareness of the availability of more sustainable options, Sage Fruit is actively seeking alternative solutions to traditional packaging. Unfortunately, traditional plastics do not rapidly degrade in our natural setting, and if they are not properly recycled, they build up in landfills, pollute the environment and disrupt our ecosystems.
Bio-Able Solutions directly addresses plastic and food packaging sustainability. Enabled with bio-assimilation technology, these new bags are 100% recyclable and uniquely formulated to fully degrade in both marine and terrestrial environments, leaving behind zero micro-plastic waste.
Key features of this new package include:
- ASTM 5526 certified
- ASTM 6954 Tier 1 certified
- FDA approved
“We are very excited to roll out this new bag for our Organic Cherries, “Chuck Sinks, President of Sales and Marketing, stated. “We have been searching for some time for the right solution and when Kaci Komstadius, Social Media and Special Projects Coordinator for Sage Fruit, brought this bag to our attention, we were confident that she had found the answer. We look forward to getting this new bag to the marketplace this coming cherry season.”
