Banding of fruit and vegetables as ecological packaging solutions in the food industry

Send by email to a friend 
Printable version 

Not all products are suitable for sale without packaging, but with fruit and vegetables that are protected by their own non-food skin, things look different. Avocados, bananas, melons or pumpkins are suitable for being sold unpacked.


However, without packaging, the information, declaration and advertising spaces also disappears. Thumb-sized stickers that are stuck directly onto the tray are often the solution. They provide information on the origin, variety or help to distinguish between organic and conventional cultivation methods. Such stickers are usually made from conventional plastic and often end up in the organic waste garbage or the compost. Accordingly, they are later found again in the soil as microplastics.


To address this growing problem ATS - Unique Banding, professional of banding in the food industry, offers ecological, adhesive-free, minimal packaging solutions such as banding of fruit and vegetables.


Suppliers of materials for ATC bands are certified according to FSSC 22000 (Food Safety System Certification), the company's printing shop according to BRC (British Retail Consortium). Thus, both meet high hygiene requirements. What's more, revenue stamps are printed exclusively using food-approved low migration and sensory neutral inks. In addition, revenue stamps are ultrasonically welded and require no glue.


More and more vegetable producers, wholesalers and retailers around the world are opting for gentle and non-adhesive strapping and packaging of products using printed paper or film bands due to the increased demand for environmentally friendly packaging solutions and the ease of operation of banding machines.


With headquater in Switzerland, the ATS-Tanner Group is active on the world stage with the key technology of banding, the gentle way to bundle products. The subsidiaries located in Germany, Spain, Canada, France, Poland, the Netherlands and the UK as well as about 40 agencies in different countries.
