Hey MK Crew

Maybe you can help?
Today I am outraged! I bottled peaches this morning and now have these stickers gracing the fruit boxes, floor and kitchen sink. 11 peaches = 11 stickers for these two jars of preserved peaches. To add insult to injury these came directly from an orchard as seconds and some didn’t have stickers. I am bitterly disappointed – why do we need to label each piece of fruit? I am so over eating an apple and finding a portion of a label in my mouth. Surely the grower details on the fruit boxes at point of sale is adequate Quality Assurance and traceability?

Maybe we should label individual carrots,potatoes and onions with grower number and variety?????? But wait we could go nuts, pardon the pun, and label all walnuts, Brazil nuts and whatever nuts are on sale!

Can MK save our planet from fruit stickers? What solutions do you have for this wicked problem?
