So -many .fresh vegetables and
fruits are prepackaged for retail
sale today that family food-shoppers
as well as all concerned with mar
keting need to understand both the
advantages ' and prqblems of this
new trend. '
.If properly cared for, prepack
aged produce has several advan
tages over that sold; in bulk,.' says
H. A. Schomer of the U. S. Depart
ment of Agriculture. It makes self-
service possible for many items that
otherwise require handling.' weigh
ing and wrapping by clerks. Thus,
it saves time and labor, for both
shoppers and retailers. It is more
sanitary and - saves waste from
handling by shoppers. Some special
services for the housewife are in
cluded - for example, spinach is
washed before packaging, sweet
corn is husked and trimmed, slaws
and salads are cut or otherwise
prepared for serving. If vegetables
and fruits are packaged near where
they are grown, shipping space and
expense is saved. Also the wrap
protects against loss of moisture
and wilting - an important advan
But there are special prflblams,
too. One is cooling or refrigeration,
especially in retail stores. In the
moist atmosphere inside the pack
age, some fresh fruits or vegetables
are more perishable -. more likely
to decay or discolor unless kept
cold. Cuts and bruises from trim
ming or other preparation of veg
etable before packaging add to
their perishability. One decayed
fruit or vegetable may mean loss
of the whole package - or repack
ing Thus, it pays to package only
high-quality fruits or vegetables.
Prompt cooling after harvest and
before packaging is needed because
the packageslows up cooling. Pack
ages then must be kept cold in stor
age, shipping and in retail stores.
Fresh vegetables and fruits are still
living when packaged, thus differ
from canned or frozen products.
Perforation or other "breathing"
arrangements must be maie for
transparent film packages. Costs of
labor and materials, also the smaller
quantity from trimming, need close
calculation so the packaging will
not make the product too expen
