The Best Way to Store & Deliver Agricultural Produce
Like any agriculturist, you must have felt the dire need to package and deliver your produce in the best possible manner. Since most agricultural produce is perishable, it demands special care and attention. In order to make sure your produce reaches the consumer in the right condition, it is imperative that you pay attention to how you package and deliver it. Here are some excellent tips to help you:
Ease of Handling
One of the most important factors to consider while preparing your agricultural produce for sale is ease of handling. Putting large quantities of produce in bags or baskets gives them no protection during transport or in the case when these bags or baskets are stacked on top of each other. This can damage the contents and result in great losses.
The best way to ensure safe and easy handling is to use strong cardboard cartons, wooden crates or rigid plastic containers that would provide added support to your produce. Racer Boxes has some robust cardboard cartons with die cut holes that are available for small, mid-sized and large orders.
The Right Quantity of Contents
Apart from the kind of packaging, also consider the technique of packing your agricultural produce. Stuffing in too many items in your cardboard carton could result in compression bruising. Since organic produce is often very delicate, this could destroy its freshness.
On the other hand, filling your boxes too loosely could result in the produce vibrating against each other, also leading to bruising. This could have grave results for edible items since they have to look fresh and appetizing in order to sell at a good price.
Protection from the Environment
Storage environment is usually more humid and can damage agricultural products. This makes it necessary to have cartons that can block off this adverse environmental effect and maintain the original condition of your products.
