Spain: Over 40 years manufacturing boxes for horticultural sector
The fruit and vegetable business has relied on other sectors, which have had to grow at the same time in order to adapt and meet the needs of producers and marketers. As a result, companies such as Envases Girona have been in the business for more than 40 years, offering both standard sized boxes as well as more customised packaging, depending on the customers' requests. "We can print them, and then the customer will give them a more personal touch, depending on the needs of the company, brand, etc. We even have boxes with a gloss finish," explains José Girona, from Envases Girona.
At present, they are able produce an average of 3 million boxes per month, reaching 25 million per year. Spain is its main destination, and "being that it is such a large country and with agriculture in practically all regions, we have four distribution points: Badajoz (where the boxes are manufactured), Huelva, Seville and Lleida," explains Girona.
The main feature of these boxes is that they are made of poplar or pine plywood, and of MDF. "All the wood we use comes from sustainable forests," affirms Girona.
