Carrying and Displaying Produce

Their colorful and open design allows for the eye catching presentation of produce, the option of color-coding your products, while also making it quick and easy to identify contents.

Growing Fruit

To grow a nice, locally grown garden for your foodservice establishment, simply place fruit inside the mesh bags when it has grown enough and then tie the bag to the garden trellis. Once the fruit has grown big enough, it will simply fall into the bag and prevent the wastage of fresh fruit or damage to produce.

The open design of these bags makes them the perfect fit for use as a simple birdfeeder to enhance the look of any location. Simply use birdseed blocks or bells (regular birdseed may fall out due to the bag’s open design), tie the top of the bag and find a place to hang this new colorful creation.

Scrubbers and Soap Bags

Don’t have one of CiboWares’ selection of scrubbing and scouring pads or sponges handy? Simply tie a mesh bag into a ball and secure with a tie or elastic and use it as a scrubber on non-stick pans such as non-stick fry pans. Durable, they are sure to scrub off tough food residue with ease.

To keep your soap dry or to turn it into a scrubbing soap, simply place a bar of soap in the bag and hang it near your sink, shower or garden, and it is ready for use.
