During the entire journey in the chain, from the greenhouse to the customer, we want our products to remain of good quality. We therefore opt for packaging that enriches the product, because throwing it away is a waste! But the choice of material is also important, so we prefer to use environmentally friendly, recycled materials and omit unnecessary packaging material.
The reasons why packaging was once invented still apply and are likely to remain so. Think of hygiene, food safety, extending the shelf life (so that there is also less food waste) and convenience. In addition, you can communicate information about the product via the packaging and it gives you the opportunity to distinguish yourself as a brand.

Polyethylene alternative in flowpack for mushrooms
One of the largest mushroom producers in the world, based in Ireland, is reducing the use of PVC films on our Omori Europe flowpackers.
PVC films have been the standard for mushrooms for over 40 years. By removing PVC films from over 60% of their products, they are constantly working to replace products to a more recyclable polyethylene alternative.
At Omori Europe, we are currently at the forefront of sustainable packaging developments; thinner stretch films without PVC to process on the STN-8500 stretch wrapper and also entry of the flowpack packaging for mushrooms. Leading in this is the European Plastic Pact, which states that it wants to achieve a weight reduction of at least 20% on so-called “virgin” plastic products.
