Schur®Star Zip-Pop Bag wins Packaging Innovation Award

Delicious potatoes in only one step, seasoned in the bag

Who doesn't now and then feel like cooking dinner is stress-inducing and limiting to family time? Thanks to the cooperation between Schur®Star Systems and Potandon Produce, North America's largest potato supplier, this is now history. With a unique bag construction and carefully selected microwavable mini potatoes, seasoned in the bag, delicious potatoes can now be prepared in only one step. 

A game changer

The new and innovative One Step…Done!™ product line from Potandon Produce will solve the dinner dilemma. But what makes it so different from other potato products in the market? The answer lies both in the potatoes and the unique bag design.

- This revolutionary bag allows you to cook quickly and easily for your entire family. The potatoes and butter puck seasoning are stored separately in a dual chamber bag. The steam strip in the bag along with the specially formulated material provides extended shelf life and is at the same time the feature that makes the bag unlike anything else on the market, says Hans Schur, CEO at Schur®Star Systems Inc.

One Step…Done!™

The new product line comes in 5 tempting varieties, flavoured to suit practically any preference. The product simplifies cooking because everything is in the bag, and neither attention nor time is required. No need to punch holes in the bag or stop midway through and stir. Delicious herbs and spices will be released at the exact right time during cooking to ensure perfect seasoning. For the first time ever, all is done in just one step, 

- It is as simple as it gets, and no additional ingredients or mixing are required, says Carter Bray, VP-General Manager, Variety Potato Division of Potandon Produce.

The Schur®Star Zip-Pop Bag was recently announced Packaging Innovation Award Winner at the 2019 CPMA Convention & Trade Show in Montreal.

A world of possibilities

The new bag construction is another great example of Schur®Star Systems' cooperation with a customer in creating an innovative packaging solution.

The Schur®Star Zip-Pop Bag is not only perfect for potatoes and other fresh produce, but also an obvious opportunity to offer convenience focused consumers ready-meal solutions with e.g. seafood, poultry, or vegetarian ingredients.
