food huggers – preserving the freshness of leftover produce




less wasted food. less wasted money. less wasted plastic wrap.
these are the key driving forces behind ‘food huggers‘ – a new way of preserving the freshness of leftover produce – by adrienne mcnicholas and michelle ivankovic. the product addresses the need to prolong the shelf life of our fruits and vegetables in the form of reusable 100% FDA silicone (BPA and phalate free) covers which can easily be popped over the remaining half of your apples, onions, peppers etc., creating a seal which locks in their natural juices and moisture. the upper edges of each ‘hugger’ snuggly wraps around your produce securing the lid in place and preventing it from air circulation which can cause food to spoil or dehydrate. dishwasher, microwave and freezer safe, they are available in four different sizes, to accommodate all shapes and sizes (from 1.5″ to 4″), the newest product added to the line-up is the ‘advocado hugger’ which is currently seeking funding on kickstarter.
