Supermarkets getting the banding message..
Finally....the concept that banding is THE way to package innovatively and sustainably is sinking in!!
We have two big supermarkets (we can't say which ones) looking at banding in film and/or paper for a variety of tasks.
Bands can repace outer cartons or hold packs onto a shelf ready tray so that shelves can be filled quickly and efficiently with minimum transit waste being generated (see photo).
we can now print digitally onto the banding material so each band is unique and bands can double up as labels - or even provide the whole package. With spring onions, for example, the band holds the onions together and acts as the label.
the Women's Institute can't grumble about that....
See Jenton's Banding Website for more information.
