Convex Plastics can provide an optimal solution for any prepared salad mix.
Consumer demand for freshness and convenience has led to the evolution and increased production of several kinds of minimally processed vegetables. For added convenience in the home or food service establishment, several produce items are often combined.
Mixed prepared vegetables deteriorate rapidly in quality and have short shelf lives. Prepared salads have the difficulty of having several different components all with widely varying requirements and respiration rates. Cut or shredded plant tissues also deteriorate more rapidly and have an inherently shorter shelf-life than produce marketed in a "whole" condition. Small pieces of tissue are more susceptible to moisture loss and wilting, and the cut surfaces dry out and frequently become discoloured. In addition, the juices exuding from the damaged cells at the cut surfaces provide an excellent growth medium for micro-organisms, particularly mould and yeasts.
By investigating each component individually and as a complete product Convex Plastics can provide an optimal solution for any prepared salad mix.
