Bags protect garlic, save material and ship efficiently

Christopher Ranch has switched from rigid plastic (PET) containers to recloseable bags for its popular Garlic. The bags are manufactured to use 80 percent less material than the old style jars at an estimated savings of more than one-half million pounds of plastic. More efficient shipping of the lighter-weight packages will eliminate 200,000 lbs of carbon emissions.Christopher Ranch has switched from rigid plastic (PET) containers to recloseable bags for its popular Garlic.

Additionally, the new bags take up less refrigerator space and press flat for easy disposal taking up much less space in garbage and recycling bins. The enhanced design of the thinner bags increases cooling efficiency to preserve product freshness, and the tear-off hood and tamper resistant membrane strengthens the line for food safety. A slider zipper adds a recloseable feature, which helps keep the garlic fresh after initial opening.

 

The familiar Christopher Ranch logo guarantees the prepped and peeled products inside are of premium quality and sustainably grown. Along with the company's famous Garlic, it also packs peeled Shallots, Cipolline and Pearl Onions.
