From an early age on Piet Pannekeet, the founder and director of JASA, helped his grandfather cleaning and cutting vegetables in his grandfather’s mill. At night Piet spent his time at the mill investigating the machines, figuring out ways to improve them. Now, 40 years later, cut vegetables are more popular than ever. A quick lunch salad or wok-ready vegetables are familiar foods to all of us. Piet’s endeavors from an early age on make that JASA has the lowdown of packing vegetables.

The benefits of pre-cut vegetables
The bias about pre-cut vegetables is that they would not be as nourishing as fresh vegetables. Actually, this is not the case, admittingly, the level of vitamin C could be present in smaller amounts. Packaging pre-cut vegetables demonstrate several advantages for both the producers and the consumer. The vegetables are packed airtight preventing the leaves from turning yellow, a fact most consumer value. The vegetables appear fresh! Another advantage is the choice in size of the packaging, offering the option to buy just the right amount for a meal. This prevents food-spill and with that green-house gasses rendering packaged vegetables sustainable. The airtight packaging also ensures a prolonged shelf life for the vegetables. Packaging salads and vegetables in well-designed containers make them eye-catchers on the supermarket shelves. A perfect way for producers to effectively make packaging a marketing tool.
