Details

FreshPaper is an inexpensive, compostable, recyclable thin organic paper insert that reduces food spoilage. The key ingredients are organic spices that inhibit bacterial and fungal growth, as well as slow down the ripening process. A small sheet of Freshpaper, comparable to the size of a dryer sheet (5”x 5”), can keep produce fresh for 2-4 times longer, approximately 75 percent the effectiveness of refrigeration.
In fact, Fenugreen is positioning the product to be used from farm to fork. FreshPaper sheets can simply be dropped into refrigerator drawers, as well as in boxes or bags of perishable food. It also can be used for large-scale food shipping and distribution. In addition, direct contact or wrapping is not necessary.
