The new Easy Open system designed by Girò makes it possible to easily open and close packets and nets without needing scissors.
"We created this new system, which has never been used in the fresh produce sector, to open and close bags easily," explains Girò Italia sales manager Franco Locati.
In addition, Easy Open makes it possible to create sustainable packaging with a low environmental impact weighing 10/12 gr for 2 kg of produce.
"We are convinced food packaging is ever-evolving. The sector follows the lifestyle of practical consumers, so we try to meet the needs of people who increasingly look to save time."
In 2018, the brand launched GirBagger, a versatile machine to incorporate and connect multiple elements or devices to improve the quality of the packaging system such as: supplies with a Smart Consumables System (SCS), the interconnection with GirControl Plus, the possibility of adding a CHW-G30 control scale or adapting a Spotless film centering integrated system.
"The high-performance GirBagger-S maintains the versatility of the previous version while increasing its productivity (up to 30%)."
Thanks to the new Easy Open system, a bag is no longer just to take the fruit home, but it can also be used to store it. This system can be applied to all Girò packagers, even the older ones.
