"We have followed this development in England over the past few years. Now, this is being demanded in the Dutch, and part of the German, retail sector. It was time to take the next step", continues Anton. "The acquisition of the top seal machine, which is also a heat sealer, does not replace traditional punnet packaging. This is still being done."
LBP has also ordered a multi-functional packaging line, which will be installed at the beginning of December. This line primarily packages grapes in punnets. It is, however, also very useful for other types of packaging. The new line will also, eventually, include a top sealer in order to meet demand.
