The boxes containing aubergines in bulk include mulching materials such as cellophane or wood shavings and paper separators in order to prevent the rubbing of the vegetables against each other and with the walls of the package. The package is usually wrapped with a sheet of paper.

Aubergines are packaged in boxes in bulk or arranged in layers; the number of units varies depending on the size.
