Reduce Wastage and Increase Profit with the ClipSlip

ClipSlip®: Reduce Wastage, Increase Profit

The ClipSlip® can reduce wastage to 1-3%, compared with traditionally grown fruit, where wastage is between 5% and 30%. As the ClipSlip® can be reused up to ten times, it provides an excellent return on investment.

Designed to separate and protect growing fruit from damage, the ClipSlip® is a unique plastic clip attached to a slipsheet, fitted onto growing fruit at the bagging stage.

Totally flexible, the ClipSlip® is able to accommodate many varieties of bananas and a broad range of other fruits.
