Does this corn last longer if shrink-wrapped and cushioned in styrofoam? Does it survive the bumps of the road better? Will more people buy it than regular, in-husk, corn?
Let’s go one shelf over.
“Covering the stems on bananas makes them last longer” they say. Okay, sure. But this?
I find it hard to believe that the extra materials and time it takes to bag these bananas outweighs the money saved from possible shelf-life extension.
I leave you with one last blood-boiler: The infamous styrofoam egg carton.
Many questions. (Probably) few good answers. Much work to do.
