Americas: Cucumber snacks keep fresh in stand up pouch


Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Grootegast has developed a stand up pouch for a new premium snack brand.

The Minigustos label from Bayer is a premium brand for tasty, crunchy, and attractive snack vegetables with a longer shelf life.

The first vegetable to be released under the Minigustos label is a snack cucumber.

The extended shelf life properties of the food are made possible with a modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) solution from Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Grootegast.

The combination of specially selected materials and a micro-perforation allows the product inside to breath and remain fresher for longer.

The packaging extends the shelf life of the fruits and ensures a crunchy taste up to 12 days after harvesting.

With its first offering from Minigustos, Bayer aims to fill a void in Northern European, Canadian, and US markets.

Minigustos snack cucumbers, are available in premium supermarkets throughout Northern Europe.

Bayer has already received market requests from customers in Canada, Australia, and China.

Stand up pouches offer a lightweight, convenient, durable and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional packaging such as glass jars and aluminum cans.

The option of all round print, together with high quality, multi-color print options means better branding and shelf appeal.

They provide better food preservation properties and extended shelf-life supporting the drive to reduce food waste.
