“SAVRpak was developed to save the quality of food, whether it’s from a restaurant, in the grocery aisle, or in your fridge,” he added. “Our patented patch keeps food tasting as crispy or crunchy as it would in a restaurant. When used in packaged produce – such as spinach or blueberries – it can extend shelf life by up to 50%.”
