The Clear Lam Peel and ReSeal Lidding Film, is designed especially with value-added fresh produce in mind, which makes sense, considering prepared vegetable sales are up 35% and fresh-cut fruit sales have surged 23% since 2005, according to a 2010 Perishables Group study.

Forowycz said Clear Lam is committed to satisfying the fresh produce industry’s call for more green packaging options, which is in line with world packaging demand.

In fact, packaging with recycled content, is reusable and/or degradable, is projected to increase about 6% annually to reach $212 billion overall by 2015, according to Clear Lam.
