What is the preferred packaging materials for potatoes?
Paper, plastic or mesh bags are all options for the potato buyer, distributor or warehouse to select their choice.

Paper used to be prevalent in the days when everyone bought 10-20-50 pounds of potatoes at a time but mostly went away because of two reasons. One if the bag broke, they had to be placed in another container. This was especially a problem if the bag was moist. Secondly customers could not see the potatoes inside.

Mesh and a combination of mesh and plastic was still the preferred method for the seventies to nineties and some grocery chains, especially in the Northeast still request them. These were typically orange or purple and partially protected the potatoes from turning green due to light while on display.

Plastic, most often with holes, has become the dominant method now. Some are clear and some have a brownish tan tint. It allows for better graphics, printing the nutrition chart on each bag.

Complete packaging solutions for packing potatoes
Everyone who has ever bought potatoes in a supermarket knows that you can get potato packaging in every shape and size. Small packages, large packages, from pillow bags to doy-style packages and tray packaging - everything is possible. JASA, therefore, has a perfect solution for every packaging question.

Potato packaging in every size
A few years ago the packages containing 5 to 10 kilograms of potatoes were very popular. Now we see a shift towards the packages containing 300 gram to 1.5 kilograms of potatoes. “Nowadays there are more different kinds of potatoes available. Older potatoes varieties are making a comeback”, Piet Pannekeet, founder of JASA, explains. “Because of that, the consumers are eating a larger variety of potatoes and therefore are buying smaller packages.” To meet the demands of the market, JASA is offering complete packaging solutions and packaging lines for all types of potatoes.

“You will see potatoes in a wide range of different packages”, Piet Pannekeet explains. “Some are packed in a plastic bag, while others are packed in a plastic sealed cardboard tray. For years these two ways were the norm to pack potatoes, but now we can replace the plastic packaging with paper: Bag-2-Paper™.”

Complete solutions to pack potatoes
JASA offers complete packaging solutions for unprocessed potatoes, from sorting machines to the outfeed belt. “Depending on the wishes of the customer, we can make a fully automated line.”

Through an industrial weigher, the sorted potatoes are weighed in exact portions. After that, the portions are packed in their respective packages. Through the outfeed belt, they are transported to the case packers or baler before they are shipped to the supermarkets and consumers.

Optical sorting machine for potatoes
To supply the best potatoes to the consumers, the potatoes are sorted by size and quality before they enter the packing line. JASA also offers solutions for this situation. Not only does the Newtec Celox machine sort the potatoes by size but it also scans the potatoes for quality. With the help of cameras, the potatoes are then analyzed before they are sorted accordingly. This process is incredibly fast and very accurate.

JASA helps you find the best solution
There are so many possibilities. Therefore, it’s really helpful if someone helps you find the right solution. Not only are there a number of ways to pack potatoes, but there are also a number of methods to keep the potatoes fresh in their packaging. This helps give the potatoes a longer shelf life but also keeps them good after purchase. The longer the potatoes stay fresh, the less it will produce food waste. “JASA can help to come up with the perfect solution for our customers”, Piet Pannekeet explains. “It all depends on whether you are packing processed or unprocessed potatoes. With certain packaging techniques, we can create the most optimal conditions for the products. Together with the customers, we look at the wishes and the possibilities before creating a complete packaging line.”

Multifunctional lines for potatoes
Multifunctionality is an important part of the process for JASA and her customers. “We want to create flexible machines that offer several packaging solutions. We want to make sure that our machines have a very short changeover time. We can also add a bypass to the line. This gives our customers the option to pack the potatoes in both trays and bags at the same time, increasing the packaging capacity per minute. Depending on the chosen options, our lines can process 25-100 packages per minute.”

Sustainable packaging for potatoes
There are a few factors involved when choosing your new packaging solution. The first factor is to create a good work environment. We need to decide which machines need to be included and how we can optimize the complete packaging line. The next thing we will look at is which packages the customer wants to create and how can we make sure that the potatoes will be packed in the right conditions. The flexibility of the machine also plays a part in choosing the right machine. On top of that, sustainable packaging also plays a large role in the choice of the correct packaging solution.

With a focus on less plastic packaging, less environmental pollution, and more sustainable solutions, there is a new kind of pressure on the packaging industry. That’s why JASA created Bag-2-Paper™. This new revolutionary paper packaging solution is for products such as unprocessed potatoes. The potatoes are packed in 100% paper* packages. These paper packages can be recycled with the rest of the papers.

Sustainable tray packaging for potatoes
Are you currently packing potatoes in a plastic sealed cardboard tray to keep the potatoes in place? We have a new sustainable solution for this too! Our new cardboard sleeve is a good alternative for the plastic packaging around the trays. The sleeve keeps the potatoes in place while keeping them visible at the same time. It’s the perfect solution for unprocessed potatoes. This will create a packaging solution that is 100% suitable for recycling.

Looking for a complete solution to pack potatoes? Reach out to our sales team, they are always happy to advise you on the possibilities for you.

POTATO, SOLANUM TUBEROSUM / SOLANACEAE
The most usual way to find potatoes is in bags and net sacks, thanks to the wide variety of packing machines that do this work. Among this type of packages there are the tubular mesh sacks of 1 and 2,5 kg and mesh sacks " Girsac" with an external string that acts as a label and as handles, with a capacity of 2 kg. This way of dispatching potatoes is understood as prepackaging, since the buyer must only choose the mesh or bag he prefers. Other materials used for these packages are plastic bags (perforated) or paper bags, used for small quantities: 2.5 (for plastic), 5,10,15 and 25 kg (for paper).

Another way to dispatch potatoes is in bulk; they usually come in sewn net sacks with a capacity superior to 5,10 and 25 kg, and they will be available for the consumer as free service.

Other packages used are cardboard and wood boxes.

Among the cardboard packages we find 6kg packages with a base of 500 xs 300 millimeters, trays covered with net for 2.5kg, 5kg boxes with lateral plastic holes to see the product and superior opening where the fingers are introduced to make manipulation easier, and also 12kg boxes.

Research has been carried out to package potatoes in thermoplastic, checking the good results in quality conservation. Nevertheless, it is a very expensive system for such a low price product as the potato is.

FOR 35 YEARS PIONEERING POTATO PACKAGING
VDH Packaging Creations’ experience in creatingpackaging for potatoes, fruit and vegetables can be traced back 35 years. Our services are combined with a major commitment to recyclability, innovation, sustainability and creativity.. Nowadays, recyclability and compostability are hot topics. However, VDH Packaging Creations has been supplying various biopackaging solutions. for 13 years already. In recent years, European standards have become increasingly strict, so packers and supermarkets are having to adapt.

To be described as recyclable or compostable, packaging must fulfill various strict European standards. One of the requirements is that the packaging is made of only one material (= mono). VDH considers this standard regarding the use of only one material very important. For several years, VDH has focused on the use of one material within the overall packaging range. This has enormous production and ecological advantages.

Packaging Potatoes
In an effort to meet changing consumer demands and lifestyles, L&M Cos. is expanding its microwaveable potatoes to include sweet potatoes, and has introduced new packaging for their microwaveable russet potatoes.

The company saw consumer trends and interests moving in a new direction, toward a more “down-home” lifestyle, and the packaging of the Russet potatoes is a reflection of that simpler time, sporting graphics featuring children playing in farm fields, and innovative cooking ideas consumers can use to have more home-cooked meals. It is all part of a marketing plan featuring products that reach out to consumers who want that quieter lifestyle.

“It connects with the values the consumers are used to, really a back-to-basics living, and our packaging reflects that,” said Glen Reynolds, L&M business management director for potatoes and onions. “We think the design and packaging really hit the mark in graphic design and attributes.”

Like their Russet counterparts, the sweet potatoes are individually wrapped in plastic and double washed prior to packaging. Minimal preparations are needed for consumption, and they can be used both as a lunch item or side item for dinner.

“They’re a perfect size for a quick lunch, and they’re also tailored for a quick grab-and-go type dinner or as a side dish,” Reynolds said.

Fresh produce is a staple for the Raleigh, N.C.-based grower and packer, but the company has been eyeing the value-added market for years, monitoring consumer trends and habits prior to releasing the microwaveable Russet potatoes more than five years ago. The company also studied consumer trends prior to releasing the new packaging for the Russet potatoes. The microwaveable sweet potatoes were unveiled at the Southeast Produce Council Expo in Tampa, Fla., with a positive response from retailers.

“As a company, we are always looking for new, unique packaging, and new ways to attract consumers, and we have been looking at these products for about a year,” Reynolds, said. “We’ve had very good response from the retail segment.”

The potatoes are available to retailers in 40-lb. boxes, typically in 70 to 80 count sizes.

Russet potatoes and sweet potatoes are key commodities for the company. Russet potatoes are one of the farm’s original crops, dating back to the mid-1960s. The commodity has increased to an average of 9,000 acres each year on L&M farms across the United States. Sweet potatoes have been a relatively new addition to their list of products only in the past 10 years.

Demand for sweet potatoes has been growing, however, and the demand for both sweet and Russet potatoes has led to dramatic increases in acreage for both crops. That demand has led to an expansion far outside North Carolina’s borders, with farms in Florida, Georgia, Texas, Colorado, Maine, Washington and Idaho, even as far west as California. The farm also has international operations in Mexico, as well as Central and South America.

With so many diverse growing locations, L&M Co. holds a unique position to offer every potato variety available on the market, varieties that are grown in every potato-growing region in the United States. That offers L&M the opportunity to market potatoes year-round.

“Russet potatoes and sweet potatoes are a very large part of our product line, and we ship a full variety of produce,” Reynolds said. “We are one of a few farms who grow every season of potatoes, and we grow them as they rotate around the growing season.”

The acreage increase has been fueled by an increase in demand for potatoes, especially sweet potatoes, as consumers are increasingly turning to them for their health benefits. Home consumption has seen dramatic increases in recent years, with the average consumer using potatoes at least once during a two-week period, and more than a third of home-cooked meals containing potatoes, Reynolds said. That demand increase was echoed by Tracy Fowler, L&M’s general manager for potatoes and onions.

“Demand by customers for sweet potatoes has increased the last two years. It seems to be a hot commodity, and it seems to be in demand for export, as well,” Fowler said.

L&M Co. markets the Russet potatoes and sweet potatoes to retail and foodservice outlets, and has facilities across the United States to meet that demand. Processing centers include North Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Texas, Colorado, Idaho, California and Washington. Most of the products offered are through the farms, though the company does contract with third-party growers to meet demand, on an as-needed basis.

The L&M facilities are also able to process and market produce for growers who may not have that capacity.

“We contract with other growers to help fill our supply needs. In some cases, we have packing houses and infrastructure in place, and we’ll assist other growers in getting their product to market,” Reynolds said.

The microwaveable potatoes are only the latest in a line of products and innovations the company is exploring to address changing consumer demands and trends, and it’s a direction the company believes is the future of the produce market.

“We saw an opportunity to offer microwaveable baked potatoes, and it just seemed like a natural fit to get the products to market quickly in a growing consumer segment,” Reynolds said.



Potato Lover's Month and Arrowfarms companies Morning Kiss Organic and Gold Bell are introducing new, compostable paper bag potato packaging.

The new potato packaging bags are made of two-ply paper with compostable glue used around the window of the bag. Made from sugar cane, the mesh window itself is also compostable.

Morning Kiss Organic will offer organic gold, russet, and red potatoes in the new packaging. Gold Bell will offer conventional gold and russet potatoes under the Morning Gold brand name.

Michael Guptill of Morning Kiss Organic:
“Our new bags, which are fully compostable at home, fulfill a strong consumer demand for sustainable packaging.”

“We hope retailers will join in this effort to increase sustainable packaging offerings in stores, and we hope this gives consumers extra incentive to add potatoes to their shopping carts.”
Employing just-in-time inventory management, Arrowfarms produce is packed to order and delivered daily.
