Fruit Separator Mats: Features and Benefits

  • Description

And how to use them to create awesome-looking fresh produce displays

Better than dividers

Create stable stacks

Or interleaved displays

Dividers do have applications in some produce displays. But in most shops they are difficult to use to maintain neat, tidy displays. Fruit Separator Mats are a much better solution. They help create stable stacks of produce that are more visually exciting.

Fruit Separator Mat are made from soft, EVA or rigid PVC sheets that have been moulded to form cavities that support the produce. EVA Mats are the most popular for most displays as they cushion the fruit and minimise damage when on display.

Subject to minimum order quantites and manufacturing lead times, Fruit Separator Mats can be made in clear PVC. Why clear? If displayed on top of, for example, attractive timber bins or tables, the colour and texture of the timber remains visible. For most stores, however, black is the colour of choice because it makes the colours of the fruit stand out.

No to Pyramids

Fruit Separator Mats are not just for bins and tables. Use them on refrigerated shelving. Or in crates, baskets and tubs. But there are limits! We often see re-stock staff building pyramids with the produce. They look fantastic. They should be proud of their display. Or should they? Unfortunately store customers hate these high pyramids. They fear for their stability and are reluctant toi select from the produce on display, worried about a majur collapse. And with these pyramids, they can only select items form the top two rows at most. Create lower stacks to maximise sales and keep your customers happy.
