Innovations in Cardboard Packaging for Fresh Produce

Waterproof packaging box 

Coated water-resistant boxes for fresh produce

Coated boxes are a game-changer in the fresh produce sector, offering a reliable and efficient solution for transporting fruits, vegetables, and other perishable goods. These specially designed boxes are constructed with a water-resistant coating that not only protects the produce from moisture and external contaminants but also maintains the product's freshness and quality.

They are ideal for the demanding requirements of the fresh produce supply chain, ensuring that delicate items remain in pristine condition from the farm to the store shelf. The water-resistant coating not only enhances the durability and longevity of the packaging but also minimises the risk of spoilage, reducing food waste and ensuring a more sustainable approach to distribution.

With coated water-resistant boxes, the fresh produce sector can maintain the integrity of their products while simultaneously improving operational efficiency and reducing environmental impact.
