Paramount Packaging are specialists in the supply of printed produce bags and films for use on automated packing lines. We can supply loose bags, BOR ( bags on a roll ), wicketted bags, printed films ( see sections Films and Form Fill and Seal Films) in this section.All produce packaging products can be supplied plain or printed to the customers design. We also supply speciality films for high barrier and longer shelf life, for example vac packing or gas flushing. Paramount also carry a range of generic printed bags in stock, printed only with the weight the bag is intended to carry, and possibly a barcode
Wicketted polythene bags are the most common form of packaging used for fresh vegetables and produce. Where harvesting and hand packing are carried out together, the wicket arms are easily attached to a belt worn by the packer, giving a high speed form of manual packing.The procedure is equally successful on a packing or grading line. Typical products in wicketted bags include lettuce, cabbage, salad leaves, spinach, fruit, herbs, etc. As with all Paramount products, wicketted produce bags, subject to quantity can be printed in up to 8 colours to the customers design brand or logo.
