Jan. 31, 2024 - Cascades has launched a new produce basket design for the produce sector. Made from up to 100% recycled fibers, the new produce baskets with flaps offer produce growers a sustainable alternative to replace more hard-to-recycle packaging.
Designed according to recognized eco-design principles, these products are in keeping with a circular economy approach. By using recycled and recyclable corrugated cardboard in its design, Cascades is supporting its customers by reducing their environmental impact while meeting consumer demand for increasingly environmentally friendly packaging.
"These new corrugated basket formats for fresh fruit and vegetables enhance our innovative product offering for the produce sector, while allowing us to continue to meet the highest standards of environmental responsibility," said Charles Malo, President and Chief Operating Officer, Cascades Containerboard Packaging.
Innovative packaging design prevents consumers from handling products and helps keep fruits and vegetables intact throughout the logistic chain. They include a closure system that prevents products from falling, without compromising visibility inside the packaging.
Available in two different models and four different sizes, from the new ½ dry quart snack size to the 1 L size, these baskets can be used to market a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, from berries to tomatoes and tree grown fruit.
In addition, the basket's multiple customization options offer a competitive advantage and will make produce brands stand out on the shelf with high-quality flexographic, lithographic and digital printing options.
Founded in 1964, Cascades offers sustainable, innovative and value-added packaging, hygiene and recovery solutions.
