Belgium: VDH Concept launches new packaging with net structure perforation

VDH Concept launches a new type of retail potato packagingVDH Concept, a Belgian company specializing in retail packaging for potatoes, vegetables and fruit, has recently introduced SQ Pack, a new packaging with a net structure perforation. According to Jan van den Heuvel, owner of VDH Concept bvba, “Allowing net structure perforations is a new way of packaging and is suitable for a lot of products, including potatoes and onions, but also citrus and bulbs. As the small holes in the foil let air in, the product is better able to breath and it extends the shelf life. There are different designs of the packaging available. The SQ-pack is available as a ‘pillow bag’, quadroseal (standing bag), doy pack or with side folding. With the foil we mainly focus on shelf life.” Customers can choose different ‘window shapes’ which are simulated as a net structure. More
