During the pandemic, plastic packaging became more popular again, as people wanted the food to be as safe as possible. An exporter of fruit from Ukraine is still committing to more environmentally friendly packaging and creates wooden packaging for all sorts of fruits.
Gold Scorpion exports a wide variety of fresh produce from Ukraine and offers various ways of packaging. They’ve been pushing their wooden packaging in order to become a more environment-friendly company, says Garik Andriasyan, director of the Ukrainian fruit exporter: “Our wooden containers are mostly used for tangerines, oranges, lemons, pears, persimmons and berries. These are the main products for which we use this packaging now, but we can produce any size and option for the client's order, even for baking bread if that would be what’s needed.”
Wood is much more friendly towards the environment and Gold Scorpion hopes that clients will agree that this is worth the extra costs: “The wooden container is an environmentally friendly product and, most importantly, we do not pollute nature while making it. For us it’s important to think about it, as nature has already suffered enough from human influence,” Andriasyan explains. “The price of wood has risen, but we are trying to keep prices as low as possible for our buyers so that they do not suffer. If we compare the prices of wood and plastic, then of course wood is a little more expensive. However, I think that our life and the purity of our nature are good reasons to spend slightly more on packaging with wood.”
“All our clients are of course accustomed to plastic, and now they need to rebuild, but I think with time everything will work out. As for the packaging itself, of course everyone is happy with the product. We try to do it with high quality so that our clients are satisfied. Our packaging is very high quality, environmentally friendly and we have all the required certificates. For anyone interested in trying this packaging; let's make the world environmentally friendly and protect our nature from pollution as much as we can!” Andriasyan concludes.
