Oriented extruded nets

Highly popular material for packaging net bags, oriented extruded are often used where produce needs to ‘breath’ yet also requires protection such as soft fruits; in this instance a thin mesh variety will be used and is wrapped around a protective punnet and sealed so becoming a clipped net bag.

Oriented extruded net bags for produce can also be specified in memory stretch guise - a popular way to package onions and garlic - so keeping their shape and displaying the produce effectively.

Extruded nets

Specifying the extruded type of mesh for your net produce bags offers a choice between the flatter mesh type or a more tubular design and is common in both small net packaging bags and larger, heavier duty variants. This durable type is popular when making packaging net bags for heavier produce such as potatoes.

This is especially the case for resealable and net reusable bags where the bag may be retained by the consumer for some time. Net produce bags made of extruded nets are highly versatile.


The ultimate in
net packaging

Knitted nets

As their name suggests they look ‘knitted’ and could be seen as net rope bags - they are a highly cost-effective method and suitable for many types of fruit and vegetable. They are popular for packaging citrus fruits especially, and are available in various colours so making it easy to match the right shade with your branding.

Along with providing good protection of produce, net produce bags made of knitted mesh help keep produce aerated, and lend themselves to various manufacturing methods whether manual or automated.


Tubular mesh is a popular option for net packaging bags: it can be specified in various densities from a thicker type used for heavier produce such as potatoes, or a finer mesh often used to wrap around and seal punnets of soft fruit.

Tubular net bags for packaging can be specified in various colours, too for displaying produce to best effect or to complement your brand colour scheme. Options include easy open, resealable and reusable net produce bags and pouches.
