It's so important to try and reduce food waste but do we all succeed at it?
SYM Fresh bags are here to help you to achieve this.
Over the past year we have all been mindful of our food shelf life, trying to make it last that little bit longer, shopping less often and eating as healthy as possible for our body and minds.
Keeping your money in your pocket too, has never been more important.
So, by using SYM Fresh bags to store your fruit & veggies in, allowing your fresh foods to last you up to 40% longer than normal, then it's got to be a good move, right?
SYM Fresh bags are made with a d2p ethylene adsorber technology, developed to reduce spoilage of fresh fruit and vegetables (which continue to ripen after they have been picked).
They have a microporous structure which will absorb and trap ethylene inside the film, effectively delaying ripening and regulating moisture, slowing down the drying out process and conserving the nutritional qualities, crispness and flavour of fresh fruit and vegetables. SYM Fresh bags are proven to extend the life of produce by up to 40%.
The bags come in a brightly coloured box (which is obviously recyclable and each box contains 10 rather large bags. So plenty big enough for most purchases and they have a press 'n' seal top.
To the more organised members of the team they found these super handy to keep your fridge or freezer looking clean and organised and they have a strip to write and date your products. It's just those little things...
I must say we had our doubts at first, as from the untrained eye, they looked like normal plastic bags but being fully reusable and recyclable, we took on the challenge and were pleasantly surprised,
We tried these products over a period of a week with various different fruit & vegetables and found that the extended life was quite a surprise. The peppers had not gone slimy, after being cut and kept for a few days in the fridge.
The crispness of the lettuce and other salads remained crisp and the blueberries were as fresh every day, as they were when 1st bought.
The bags themselves have a long shelf life, as they are easy enough to rinse and reuse time and time again.
So, if you find yourself throwing out your fruit, veg and salads, or even just never eat them quick enough and want to prolong all their nutrients and goodness and have them tasting as fresh as the day you bought them, then we say, go on, give them a try.
