New: grapes in top-seal packaging

“With the start of the South African grape season, Capespan has launched its latest grape packaging top-seal punnets,” says Danny Simons, Logistics Manager for Capespan Continent NV. “These are punnets of 500 grammes of grapes, packaged in boxes of ten punnets. With this novelty, Capespan wants to anticipate the latest trend in grape packaging.” Top-seal is a type of packaging that has been gaining in popularity lately. More and more types of fruit are packaged in this pack type. Up till now, this packaging was mainly used in the soft fruit and the convenience fruit sectors, but top-seal is also used increasingly often for grapes.



Quality corrections up to the last minute
Capespan offers this packaging in cooperation with Fruit Packing Zeeland, which operates from the site of Kloosterboer Vlissingen in the Netherlands. “The valuable input and expertise from Marco Ltd and Het Packhuys contributed to, among other things, making the right choice of material. The large advantage of top-seal packaging is that it removes complexity from the country of origin, for it allows quality corrections up to the last minute before supplying it to the customer.” Moreover, it has environmental advantages. “Upon shipping loose fruit, you transport more weight and less air. That ensures our carbon footprint decreasing considerably.”



And that is not all. Simon says: “The use of top-seal is two-fold in supermarkets as well. On the one hand, top-seal stops the consumer from opening the punnet and touching the fruit. On the other hand, the pre-printed film allows for considerably more consumer information without decreasing product visibility.”
