Innovation and design for the agricultural sector
Vegabaja Packaging has attended Fruit Attraction with some of its innovations for the agricultural sector.
The S33Mx is ideal for the transport of fruit and vegetables in tubs and/or alveoli. Like the S23, its special design improves the product's visibility. Moreover, its greater cooling capacity and improvement of product quality during transport are endorsed by several technological institutes. The use of S33Mx also leads to higher economic benefits for the agricultural producer, saving energy costs, reducing the cooling time in tunnels or cold rooms, and saving in logistics.
In addition to products developed for the special characteristics of the agricultural industry, Vegabaja also offers advisory and graphic design services, so that the packaging can contribute to making the product it contains more attractive to the consumer. This service is possible thanks to the use of the most advanced printing techniques.
Agro-food sector on the rise
The agro-food sector has been one of the pillars of the economic recovery. In 2016, the turnover reached 46,807 million and exports reached 49,000 million; a record figure. According to Grupo Hinojosa, these good results have translated into an increase in the number of business deals closed during the recent Fruit Attraction, as well as of the number of visits scheduled for the coming months.
Fruit Attraction's visitors have shown their interest in the wide range of solutions for this industry, including UNIQ and column type formats for fruit and vegetables, 100% recyclable packs for small fruit, trays, hydroponic containers, standard and special trays, baskets, containers for mini-watermelons, boxes, octavines for fruit pulp, Premium containers, exhibitor boxes and a long etc. For many of these solutions, the group has exclusive patented models for its clients.
Complete solutions in digital printing and high quality
One of the features of Grupo Hinojosa's packaging that are most appreciated by agro-food producers is the quality of the printing. A quality and variety that is possible thanks to the group's constant technological investments. Thus, its portfolio includes solutions for all kinds of finishes, either through high quality printing, the most widely used in the sector, or through digital printing, especially suited for small productions or personalised prints.
The ultimate goal is to deliver packaging formats that enhance the appearance of fruits and vegetables on the shelf and, therefore, contribute to increase the sales of its customers. This commitment, together with the firm's R+D+i, are two of the pillars on which Grupo Hinojosa's leadership in the agricultural industry is based.
