GreenFruit Avocados Brings New Boxes to PMA Foodservice 2019; Extends Avocado Quality and Shelf-Life
NEWPORT BEACH, CA - PMA Foodservice attendees are in for a treat when they swing by GreenFruit Avocados’ booth, because the company will be introducing its innovative 2-count box and outer carton. For retailers looking to make an avo-splash in the produce aisle, GreenFruit Avocados’ new packaging is sure to catch eyes and hearts with handy info and increased sustainability.
"These boxes represent a more sustainable solution compared to plastic bags since they’re 100 percent recyclable and provide better protection in transit and storage—which reduces shrink," said Dan Acevedo, Business Development Director. "We’ve tested these boxes for the past year with a customer in New York and have seen excellent results with product quality, distribution, versatility, and the efficiency of the design. We’re excited to offer them now to all of our customers—foodservice and retail, branded or privately labeled."
According to a press release, the 24-count, one-layer outer box is shipped and received containing 12 smaller boxes inside, each box containing two size-48 avocados. By supplying in twos as opposed to bulk quantities, foodservice partners can reduce waste and fulfill orders by smaller entities such as restaurants.
The boxes provide ample ventilation and protection during the shipping process, and include a stage-of-ripeness guide, which is as snazzy as it is informative. The SKU on each 2-count box promotes traceability within the foodservice industry as product changes hands, because each box relates to its master container.
