Prior to the start of the South African Organic Table Grape season, OTC Organics presents a carton table grape packaging to meet increasing demand from end customers.
Reducing plastic packaging for vegetables and fruit is perhaps the most discussed topic of the moment. Retailers, distributors, packers, consumers and OTC Organics too want to have all (plastic) packaging disappear from the shelves tomorrow. Many products can easily be traded without packaging, while for other products this is more complicated. We all know the image of grapes in a plastic clamshell. This plastic bowl has been developed to protect the product and makes the transportation of the grape in the widest sense of the word safer and easier. Despite the fact that the plastic bowl is “the standard” and also the cheapest packaging alternative, OTC Organics felt they had to change this. Together with their packing partner Eurowest, they have developed an alternative that can easily be recycled after use because it consists of paper, a modern step towards a plastic-free shelf.
The product will be displayed at the company’s stand at Fruit Attraction in Madrid. Visit them at booth 10G01 Holland Pavilion (Hall 10).
