Sustainable soaker pads for raspberry punnets

Project objectives

The plastic pad found in many fruit punnets helps to keep the fruit fresh. This project is looking at the effectiveness of a recyclable novel punnet that will maintain and extend the quality of raspberries. If successful, this could help to reduce 3.6m sq meters of plastic a year.
