Packeted vegetables make such a difference

Some supermarkets sell their vegetables and dry goods weighed and neatly packeted, and at no extra cost. The goods look so clean and tidy packeted and labelled, and it is easy for the customer to pick items and make a purchasing choice.

When goods are packeted and labelled, the customer does not have to spend time waiting for a salesperson to weigh and price the goods. Also, by using this system you do not have the problem of customers handling items and damaging them by tossing them around, dropping them back on the shelf and often mixing them up with other vegetables.

It is to be hoped that all supermarkets will adopt the hygienic and time-saving practice of packeting and labelling. It would be even nicer if supermarkets used re-sealable, re-usable packets so we can cut down on the excessive use of packaging materials and help protect the environment.
