|Organic produce wrapped in plastic|
Doing some internet research, I found a letter from a consumer to Migros asking why the supermarket chain sells its organic zucchinis and eggplants in tough plastic wrappers. Representatives at Migros replied saying that they do so to satisfy consumers, who want to make sure that what they are really buying is "bio" and to avoid the threat of contamination during transportation.

Also noted: the cheaper non-organic tea bags at Migros are sold loose in one cardboard box, unlike the organic variety which are individually wrapped.
