We are often asked why each Share-Original must be individually packed as this is apparently an "unnecessary" luxury. Of course, this type of single packaging is not ideal - but necessary. Therefor the components are "good" components - especially PE. This packaging rots relatively quick under good conditions.
In fact, it is a necessary step, as each Share-Original matures and fermentes as a "living food" in its "dwelling". To ensure the minimum shelf life of 24 months, the fruit is packaged under a protective atmosphere wich ensures that no oxygen interferes with the process of the second fermentation.
Another advantage is that you can take the valuable fruit in this way without any problem on travels.
Btw .: the external packaging (where it does not depend on tightness) is of course biodegradable!
