“I’ve been a huge supporter of OPS since its inception, and it’s been great to watch the show grow so quickly,” says Dan Davis, director of business development at Starr Ranch Growers. “It’s given us a great space to showcase an ongoing evolution of organic offerings through the last few years. Whether it be our packaging innovations that kick off with organic first, or our transition to new varieties, it’s given us the forum to show retail decision makers our best.”
Alongside the excitement of sharing new organic video content at their booth and highlighting its latest HiC2 bags, the Starr Ranch Growers team is looking forward to being able to reconvene this year and get back to a more ‘normal’ mode of operation with fellow produce colleagues.
At the upcoming Organic Produce Summit, Starr Ranch will have new organic offerings, marketing activities and sustainable packaging innovations to share.
“This year we’ll highlight our new HiC2 bags - a new film for our pouch bags that is a truly recyclable #4 product instead of the typical #7 that actually goes into a landfill,” said Davis. “We’ll also have our corrugated fixed weight packaging made from pulp and paper and 100 percent recyclable as well.”
Their latest packaging innovation features an exclusive HiC2 bag made of High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) plastic. When HDPE recycling is done the right way, it can help keep non-biodegradable plastic out of landfills and help the environment. Recycled HDPE plastics can be used to make plumbing pipes, plastic rope, children’s toys and a vast range of other products. It also takes much less energy to create products from recycled plastics like HDPE than from new plastics, which helps reduce the use of fossil fuels.
At the show, Starr Ranch will highlight its new HiC2 bags, a new film for its pouch bags that is a recyclable #4 product, along with its corrugated fixed weight packaging made from pulp and paper and 100 percent recyclable as well.
Beyond showcasing these new initiatives, it is Starr Ranch’s hope that all will be able to safely attend the show with the precautions that have been put in place to increase available space.
