A food cover, also known as a fresh keeper, food umbrella, or pop-up food cover, is a versatile accessory designed to protect your food from dust, insects, and other contaminants. Whether you're hosting a picnic, barbecue, or simply storing leftovers in the fridge, these covers play a crucial role in maintaining the freshness and integrity of your meals.

Five Ways to Reduce Food Waste with Food Covers

  1. Extended Freshness: By using food covers, you create a protective barrier that shields your food from exposure to air and environmental factors. This not only prevents premature spoilage but also extends the freshness of your fruits, vegetables, and prepared dishes.
  2. Reduced Spoilage: Food covers, such as onion savers, tomato savers, and avocado savers, help reduce spoilage on commonly used fruits and vegetables by providing a dedicated storage solution for specific ingredients. These specialised covers ensure that your produce stays fresh for longer periods, minimising the need for frequent replacements.
  3. Enhanced Refrigeration: When storing leftovers in the fridge, using food covers prevents the transfer of odours and helps maintain the original flavours of your dishes. This reduces the likelihood of food being discarded due to undesirable taste changes.
  4. Prevention of Cross-Contamination: Food covers are instrumental in preventing cross-contamination in the kitchen. By covering and isolating different food items, you minimise the risk of bacteria transfer and ensure the safety of your meals.
  5. Efficient Outdoor Dining: Pop-up food covers create a protective shield against unwanted guests like flies and insects. This not only preserves the hygiene of your outdoor spread but also prevents the need to discard food due to contamination.

Food Covers & Fresh Keepers - FAQ's

How do I keep my produce fresh?

To keep your produce fresh, consider using a crisper drawer liner. These liners help maintain optimal humidity levels in your refrigerator's crisper drawer, preserving the freshness of fruits and vegetables by preventing excess moisture or drying out.

How do you keep an avocado fresh after cutting it?

After cutting an avocado, sprinkle a little lemon or lime juice on the exposed flesh to reduce oxidation. Place the cut avocado in an airtight container like an avocado saver, or cover it with plastic wrap, ensuring minimal exposure to air, which helps slow down the browning process.

How can I keep food fresh longer without a refrigerator?

To keep food fresh longer without a refrigerator, consider using alternative storage methods such as a makeshift root cellar, coolers with ice packs, or pantry storage containers with airtight seals. These methods help maintain lower temperatures and reduce exposure to air, preserving the freshness of perishable items.
