Market Week – Packaging for Greengrocers

Bags, boxes and punnets, all available from stock Supermarkets spend a lot of time making their fruit and veg look appealing Morrisons even spray them with a fine mist of water for extra showmanship in some of their stores but really, is it a patch on the colours that greet you as you step into a proper greengrocer s shop? No cellophane, no bagged salad, and nobody choosing your fruit without even squeezing it first! Jones & Cane have a range of products for you, if you run one of these (much more appealing) shops Specialist bags for fruit and veg Our most popular packaging for greengrocers is the trusty bag-on-a-roll 1 .

They re available in four varieties: HD, LD, with tie handles or printed. We sell dispensers 2 for these that can be hung on shop fittings or screwed to the wall, making them an easy to use, reasonably priced option. We also stock brown paper bags 3 , strung so that they can be used quickly, ideal for smaller quantities and popular for fruit.

And if your customer s a big buyer, we also sell carrier bags 4 our recycled blue bags or biodegradable carriers are a well-priced way of carrying larger buys. Punnets and baskets For soft fruits that are in danger of being squashed, we have a range of punnets 5 from quarter pound trays 6 that suit blueberries or currants, to large 1kg punnets great for larger stoned fruit like peaches and nectarines. Our pick-your-own or mushroom baskets 7 have sturdy cardboard sides and a metal handle customers have used them for anything from apples and pears to transporting children s picnics!

Special items for special occasions If like many greengrocers or fruiterers you sell flowers or make up fruit hampers or baskets, we can also provide you with crystal clear cellophane 8 for wrapping, and paper rolls and reams with printed designs to make them extra special. If you d like to discuss any of the products mentioned or have queries about other packaging needs, please do give us a call on 01603 722264, or pop into our showrooms in Rackheath 9 , where our knowledgeable staff will be happy to help. Tomorrow Packaging for butchers and fishmongers.

Motorcycle practise at Rackheath airfield – Jimmy Lee Shreeve

Whizzed over to Rackheath airfield this afternoon for a spot of motorcycle practise. Stuff you can t do on public roads, like slaloming, u-turns, figures of eight, lean-angles at low speeds, and generally perfecting your technique. It s a great location away from the rush of the main roads.

The airfield was built for the USAF during World War Two and Liberator bombers flew on missions on the two runways at the site. The area is owned by a farmer from North Walsham about ten miles away. He rents it out to truck driving tuition firms.

So you have to pick the right time to find the place empty. Weekends are good. But no one was about today, surprisingly, as it s a Monday.

Technically I m trespassing. But I noticed a cop car go past and it didn t stop they probably saw the rubber sport cones I use to practise around, and turned a blind eye. And besides, I m not doing any harm.

It s actually not easy finding locations to muck about off road on motorcycles. I ve got two other locations I can use too, so I m lucky. I enjoy it and in a sense it s a hobby, but one that pays dividends when riding daily out on the public roads.

Equally, it s good to be able to get out into the countryside, and practising motorcycle manoeuvres is meditative in many ways the sheer concentration and the need to avoid daydreaming or thinking about anything else other than what you are doing. But the weather today was incredible. The tail end of January and it was pretty warm mid fifties.

I only needed a couple of t-shirts and my leather jacket. My hands weren t even cold. After about an hour on Rackheath airfield I shot into Norwich to Tescos to buy a copy of Back Street Heroes and some beef jerky.

As soon as you hit the supermarket car park it s back to the rush and bustle of the city.

A lot of people but very little communication or interaction.

Everybody a lonesome soul.
