Christopher Ranch Changes to Compact, Eco-Friendly Packaging For Its Quality Peeled Garlic

""Gilroy, CA (March 24, 2010)—With the introduction of its new eco-friendly, resealable bag, Christopher Ranch protects freshness and facilitates disposal and recycling (100% recyclable, the bag compresses flat), while cutting resource consumption by 80%.  Available starting April 2010 in 1, 3 and 5-pound sizes, the sturdy, streamlined pack is compact and easy to store.  On the 5-pound pack, a tear-off “hood” and zip-lock closure reduces the risk of contamination and enhances food safety (one and three-pound sizes feature press-and-seal closures). Christopher Ranch date-codes each bag, so operators can monitor usage and rotate product.

The new eco-friendly pack for Christopher Ranch Peeled Garlic is the latest example of the company’s commitment to providing product solutions that add value from field to table.  To learn more about Christopher Ranch California Heirloom Garlic and other Christopher Ranch foodservice products—“All garlic is not created equal”™—visit www.christopherranch.com
