Shelf life

When it comes to life time expectancy of  onion net bags or indeed with any net bags produced from plastic material there is good news and some bad news. If your onion sacks are stored away from any sunlight they should last indefinitely, that's the good news. The bad news?  We'll start with the worst offender, ultraviolet rays (UV). Many of us love those scarce sunny days in the UK, but beware those few days of sunlight will still degrade and breakdown the polypropylene or  polyethylene mesh in a relatively short amount of time. In some bright summer days you may be surprised to find mesh deterioration could be in as little as a month or two. Obvious signs of this is a bleaching effect on the areas of your onion bags which have taken most of the suns rays, this will show up as lighter shades of netting.  Secondly and to a lesser extent, netting bags can make a very comfy warm nesting pad for Mr & Mrs Mouse and family, not forgetting their cousins the free loading rat clan. In an ideal world  nesting small mammals in onion net bags is all very sweet,  but in reality those cute little goofy teeth really will cut and burrow out a nesting hole in a bale of nets with no problem. Not to mention those naive blighters do not bother to use the great outdoor toilet. In summary a literal small costly pain! 

Bearing in mind the aforementioned, we recommend storing any net bags empty or full,  away from sunlight, especially direct sunlight and when and if at all possible keep your net bags shaded. However if  there is no getting away from sunlight you could consider the option of  UV stable onion sacks we can offer.  To prevent vermin nesting in the bags, you may like to consider storing them in a sealed unit such as a hard box or container? 

Onion nets* with the optional bands or printed labels is a very good way to advertise your brand and a great way to stand out from the crowd,  or just simply to mark your company's details on the onion bags.

*Subject to minimum order quantity starting at 10,000 pcs and with a lead time from 6 weeks only.

However for you to attain the most cost effective branded onion net bags then our recommendation is for our Far Eastern produced onion bags. We advise for you to plan well ahead for these, as typically a minimum lead time of  4 to 6 months is required. Should  you require a bespoke order urgently and a faster turn around time is paramount, we offer European supplied onion sacks, which could alleviate a tricky situation with a typical turn around time of only 6 to 8 weeks from order.
