Raul Acevedo Talks Fox Packaging and Solutions Customer Benefits and Product Strategies



MCALLEN, TX - ’Tis the season for fresh produce sales, and if you are a potato grower, packer, and shipper, Fox Packaging and Solutions has many opportunities for you. While the beauty of produce often speaks for itself, packaging can go a long way to ensure quality, shelf-life, and consistency while elevating brand awareness and differentiation.

Raul Acevedo, Sales Manager, Fox Packaging“More than anything, Fox wants to ensure that our customers receive the service and the packaging that they need for continued successful seasons,” Raul Acevedo, Fox Packaging’s Sales Manager, shares with me. “When you are planning a successful potato packaging program, it is important to get ahead and strategize so that you are prepared to meet the critical demand that is already upon us and also to plan any updates or upgrades you may need to your program in 2023.”

If there is anything that those on the fresh produce supply-side cannot stress enough, it is the success companies find when they are both innovative and proactive about their packaging programs.

Fox Packaging and Solutions has several opportunities for potato growers, packers, and shippers to ensure quality, shelf-life, and consistency while elevating brand awareness and differentiation

Fox Packaging and Solutions brings a host of options for its customers from the Fox Fresh Mesh Combo® Bag which can be used for merchandising potatoes in high-turnover environments to the Fox Fresh Mesh Wicketed® Bag with a draw-tape closure for sweet potatoes.

Also, the Fox Stand-Up® Bag presents a host of merchandising options and is perfect for bite-sized and fingerling potatoes.

From the Fox Fresh Mesh Combo® Bag and the Fox Fresh Mesh Wicketed® Bag with a draw-tape closure to the Fox Stand-Up® Bag and Combo Ultra Shield® Bag, Fox Packaging and Solutions brings a wide portfolio of protection to the potato category

Additionally, the Combo Ultra Shield® Bag directly combats food waste by blocking ultraviolet (UV) light with its two-layer black and white poly film side that prevents nearly 100 percent of visible light and 90 percent of UV light—all of which dramatically reduce potato greening and extend shelf-life.

With packaging demand comes equipment needs as well, an area of expertise that Fox is more than happy to introduce and highlight for its customers.

With the holidays upon us, it is definitely time to plan for today and for the future of 2023.
