Handling one million kilos of bell pepper every week
Bell pepper growers Harvest House combines packing activities at Rainbow Kleinpak

The bell pepper packing activities of packing stations GreenPack and Rainbow Kleinpak will be combined as Rainbow Kleinpak in De Lier, the Netherlands, as of 1 January 2018. The majority of the bell pepper growers from CoŲperatie Harvest House, with a combined area of 333 hectares, have signed a partnership agreement, so that the project Centraal Verpakken Paprika (Central packing bell pepper) can start.

In coming months, packing station Rainbow Kleinpak will be made ready to process one million kilos of bell pepper every week as of production season 2018.

Scaling-up and supply chain
Scaling-up and increasing are continuing apace for international customers of vegetables. Itís therefore necessary to be large enough as a supplier in order to continue to be a good partner. Thatís why switching to central packing is a logical step. Besides, thereís more and more demand for safely produced food globally.

Orders automatically enter their systems via EDI, and with SSCC labels, thereís complete track and trace, all the way up to the customer. It should be obvious that managing these kinds of processes from production companies to the retailerís DC anywhere in the world requires a different level of organisation and people than in previous years. As a company of a larger size, itís easier to invest in this.
