Chantler Packaging Inc. has introduced a pack, EnduroPouch, that features a reinforced handle and a recloseable slider zipper.

Fresh produce customers include Leamington, Ontario-based Pure Hot House Foods Inc., which markets under the Pure Flavor label. Such Pure Flavor products as cucumbers and the company’s Aurora Bites mini peppers are shipping in EnduroPouch.

Designed to avoid the handle breakage in poly bags, the pouch was created for grapes and cherries but recently adopted for some vegetables too.

The handle cuts plastic use up to 25%, according to Chantler Packaging. The goal was sustainability and cost savings, Grant Ferguson, vice president of sales and marketing at Mississauga, Ontario-based Chantler, said in a news release.

The zipper was put in place with packers as well as consumers in mind.
