The Butterfly wrap is a pattern that is applied by machine, to help address issues getting produce to the major supermarket distribution centres, which has introduced a new crate system over the past 18 months.
"It's a big environmental plus," he said. "It's a huge attraction. Our customers are aware of the impact, as everyone is, and our company is focused on environmental benefits which coincide with savings for the customer, basically from crop to gate. If we can reduce their cost of getting their produce to market and also reduce the waste. It's a benefit to the grower and consumer."
The Butterfly wrap is now being used on a range of different produce items, which Mr Sandercock says is expanding all the time.
"We are now doing bananas - that's in cartons with a particular banana wrap," he said. "We are doing it for tomatoes, we are doing it for citrus, and we are doing it for different types of lettuces, salads, avocados. Mangoes will see it more this year, as the main season will come into Darwin and then North Queensland. So we will be doing more work with mangoes."
Mr Sandercock adds that there are already plans to expand into the New Zealand market, with interest from major supermarket chain, Countdown.
