Time is a valuable resource. Spend less time worrying about your produce packaging supplies and let the Bedford team help get your crop retail ready.

Bedford’s fresh produce packaging provides more than a bundling and tagging solution. Our team of graphic designers can help build your durable “mini-billboard” that is sure to grab consumer’s attention and resonate with them during each trip to the store for more.

We won’t forget about the essentials! Our team will help you meet retailer requirements by printing custom barcodes on your tag or tie so that it’s easily scannable at checkout. Add additional important information such as country of origin, organic certification, or any other product details you want to communicate with consumers.

Bib Ties® and Flag Ties®

Your brand deserves attention—give it some billboard space. Our Bib Ties place a tag in the middle of the produce twist tie where you can share your story, inform consumers, or simply make your brand stand out. We custom print our Bib Ties, with options for printed tie and tag shapes. Our tags are water-resistant, and plastic-encased wire prevents rusting.
