FarmFresh packaging for fruits connected to priority sustainability guidelines at Fruit Logistica

In a significant move towards sustainability within the fresh produce sector, Termotécnica showcased its FarmFresh packaging line at Fruit Logistica Berlin, underscoring the growing demand for post-use recycling. This initiative, part of Brazil's Pavilion, highlights Brazil's commitment to sustainable export solutions, with support from ABRAFRUTAS and APEXBrasil. FarmFresh's EPS packaging, known for its sustainability attributes, has caught the attention of international markets, leading to an expanded recycling network across the UAE, France, England, and the Netherlands.

Termotécnica's portal is a pivotal step towards enhancing global EPS recycling efforts, providing crucial information on disposal and collection points worldwide. "With partner recyclers in other countries, together we can expand the reverse logistics and EPS recycling process," states Albano Schmidt, Termotécnica's president. The company's commitment to the circular economy is further evidenced by its role as a major EPS recycler in Latin America.

Nivaldo Fernandes de Oliveira, Termotécnica’s superintendent director, emphasizes the packaging's role in reducing CO2 emissions and food waste, contributing significantly to the sustainability of the distribution chain. Furthermore, Termotécnica's alignment with IFPA Brasil highlights its dedication to the fresh produce industry's sustainability and food safety standards.

Amidst a surge in fruit exports, with ABRAFRUTAS reporting a 26.73% increase in revenue for 2023, Termotécnica has solidified its position as a key player in the export market, with FarmFresh packaging being instrumental in the shipment of a wide variety of fruits to global destinations. This packaging solution not only extends shelf-life but also ensures the quality and safety of Brazilian fruits, reinforcing Brazil's position in the international market.
