In order to ship summer produce like peaches, tomatoes, and berries safely, it’s important to partner with a packaging company that understands the unique needs of agricultural packaging. Each crop requires special handling and unique packaging design in order to ensure food safety and minimize loss.
Produce Packaging Requirements
The following considerations are key to ensuring successful shipping from farm to store.
- Ventilation: allows heat to escape and accelerate cooling
- Protection: reduce loss through successful package design
- Water Loss Reduction: maintain freshness by reducing the potential for water loss
