Sage Fruit Co. LLC, Yakima, Wash., has introduced a new line of 3-pound pouch bags for its organic apples with a 2-pound bag for the Honeycrisp variety, said Chuck Sinks, president of sales and marketing.

The company features organic versions of the major apple varieties, including red delicious, Pink Lady, fuji and granny smith, and also has the Smitten variety available, he said.

Although the pouch bag appears to be the best choice for marketing organic apples at the present time, the company is looking for ways to cut back on its use of plastic, Sinks said.
