Fox Packaging™ Celebrates 60th Anniversary; Aaron Fox Discusses
MCALLEN, TX - We love celebrations here at the AndNowUKnow office, and 60 is an amazing milestone to celebrate. Fox Packaging™, an industry leader in packaging innovation, is proud to have celebrated its 60th anniversary serving the produce industry this year.
“My father, Kenneth, instilled many lessons in us as he built his legacy alongside his family,” said Aaron Fox, Executive Vice President. “Fox Packaging, and the Fox family, values relationships and places emphasis on surrounding ourselves with those who are equally as passionate about the work as we are.”
According to the release, Kenneth Fox began Fox Packaging in 1962 when he moved his family to South Texas with used equipment and borrowed space in the back of a carrot shed. Today, Fox Packaging remains family-owned and -operated, now servicing produce customers across North and South America through its own facility with remote representation across the United States.
Over the past six decades, the company’s goal has remained the same—to ensure good food reaches communities with the quality intact.
“We must be flexible to meet the demands of our customers’ changing businesses,” said Fox. “That’s why we encourage our customers to think of Fox as an extension of their brand, rather than a packaging supplier. Our innovative and creative approach to packaging provides excellent product safety while delivering brands and key messages to consumers.”
Fox Solutions aims to provide fresh produce packers and shippers with flexible packaging solutions that not only achieve cost-savings through operational efficiencies but also positively affect the bottom line with increased demand from retail buyers.
As a domestic packaging partner, Fox Packaging can alleviate the expenditure and lead times when compared to imported packaging. With many companies experiencing the current challenges of the supply chain, partnering with Fox can be a solution to these industry hurdles.
Here’s to many more decades for the packaging innovator!
