Being an organic, sustainable brand, Ela's Apples will soon be offering consumers something they have never had before — the promise of superior tasting apples with every purchase. Given the quality of their fruit and their commitment to a consistently great eating experience, protecting their apples from harvest to consumption was of high importance. Doing so with plastic free and home compostable packaging, however, was of extreme importance to their mission.
