Fruit Punnets

Fruit punnets protect fruit in transit while offering consumers excellent visibility of the product.

Paper-based punnets, trays and baskets offer a replacement to polystyrene or plastic trays. 

Made from corrugated cardboard or solid board, our punnets are 100% recyclable and made from a renewable resource. 

High quality printed punnets allow you to use colour and graphics to attract consumer attention in the retail environment leading to an increase in sales. 

Fruit punnets are also designed to meet the physical requirements of the supply chain to ensure your fruit arrives in optimal condition. Punnets are supplied flat or stacked to maximise storage space and minimise transport costs.
