Student design to improve fruit gathering process

A team from Taipei Tech Master Program of Innovation and Design wants to lower transit cost by replacing traditional fruit wrap made by plastics foam with a retractable fruit bag called “Solidwrap”.

Solidwrap is made by eco-friendly paper and PLA plastic. The folding line of paper creates flexible growing space and protection for fruits. And the plastic part provides transparency for farmers to observe fruit’s growing status.

Traditionally, farmer will use bag to protect fruits from biological damage and plastic foam to keep fruits intact during transporting. Since Solidwrap can prevent fruits from insect bites and delivery damage, cost- reduction for farmer can be expected according to the team. In a time when organic gardening and environmental protection are highly emphasized, this design is an example for people to rethink possibilities in our food supply psystem.
