Delivering Seasonal Foods for Maximum Freshness

Are You Eating in Season?

The changing seasons provide us an exciting opportunity to incorporate new foods into our diets that are only readily available that certain times of year. More specifically, each season provides us with a beautiful array of produce that we should always try to take advantage of for both benefited health and cost reduction when purchasing produce.

Nourishment through high nutritional food is important in colder months such as the ones we are currently experiencing. Seasonal fruits and vegetables that can naturally ripen in the sun taste better and hold the highest amounts of antioxidants and phytonutrients (the natural compounds found in plant foods that hold beneficial effects when working with other essential nutrients). To achieve the freshest in seasonal vegetables and fruits it is important to consume produce as close to the time of harvest as possible. Plascon helps in that effort by offering a variety of box and bin liners ideally suited for your seasonal produce, helping to ensure protection against contaminants when harvesting, storing, and transporting. With several stock options including biodegradable solutions, and the ability to produce custom liners, we are confident we can find a liner for your operation!
