In order to bring ease to the difficulty of transporting heavy whole melons, pineapples and gourds home easily, Vicente Peris created special packaging for half fruit slices for Spanish retailer El Corte Ingl├ęs.

Even when a full fruit or vegetable is purchased for family consumption, the produce often ends up wasted. In Spain and Latin America, it's quite customary to have a fruit vendor slice fresh produce in half for purchase, solving issues that have to do with weight and food waste.

Since slicing open fresh produce in a grocery store is not always possible due to food and safety regulations, these half packages make it easier for smaller households to take home just what they need, without making a mess.
