FreshPaper now available in Australia
A piece of biodegradable paper that is said to keep fruit and vegetables fresh longer is now available in Australia.
‘FreshPaper’ is a piece of paper that is infused with organic spices which prolong the life of fresh produce. The paper is described as helping keep produce fresh two to four times longer.
FreshPaper was created by Kavita Shukla who first came across that paper’s ingredients after drinking tap water in India as a teenager. After drinking the water her grandmother gave her a mixture of spices which Shulka says stopped her from getting sick. These spices inspired the creation of FreshPaper that was developed in Shulka’s garage.
The paper was original designed for use in the developing world but is now available for consumers in Australia to place them in their fruit bowls, fridges or existing packaging.
The spices in the paper inhibit bacterial and fungial growth and enzymese that cause over-ripening.
FreshPaper says its product can help tackle food wastage with 40 per cent of the average household garbage bin filled with food.
