Box Liners Protect your produce as Harvest Season arrives!

Posted By Nancy Hodges

Box Liners to package your delicate crops & keep them safe!

harvest season is here

As the days get shorter, and the nights get a bit cooler, the signs of Fall are among us. With the Autumnal Equinox just a few days away (September 23rd, to be exact), the Fall Harvest is pouring in!  While our friends to the south may still be experiencing a heat wave, in Northern Michigan, we are seeing the signs of Fall in terms of both temperature, as well as noticing the leaves starting to turn their majestic bold colors. 

garden tomatoes in hand With the Harvest Season in full swing, Plascon is here to serve our agricultural communities and farmers with our line of bags and box liners to protect your valuable crops during transport and distribution.  As a blown film manufacturer, we make our liners right here in our Traverse City, Michigan factory.  That means customization is available to suit your specific needs and requirements.  We produce film rolls, bags, and liners in both clear and colored varieties, and also have the option to print a one-color logo directly on your finished bags for brand identity, or to indicate biodegradability.

Oh, you didn't know we offer biodegradable packaging options?  Yes, we do!  Our liners will biodegrade in both aerobic and anaerobic (with or without oxygen), and with or without the presence of light.  All while providing the same strength and tensile properties as traditional non-degradable plastics. 

All of our box liners and bags are FDA approved for food packaging and BRC 'AA' certified to ensure the highest sanitary conditions and quality. We manufacture gusseted, flat, and star sealed liners to best suit your requirements, in your choice of LLDPE, HDPE, PE Blends, and of course as mentioned, biodegradable film options.

Plascon box liners and bags can be used for a wide variety of goods, including some of these common products:
