In the world of agriculture, the journey from field to table involves numerous steps, with packaging playing a crucial role in preserving the freshness and quality of fruits and vegetables. When first introduced to the agriculture sector, corrugated packaging revolutionised the way fruits and vegetables are presented and transported. In recent times, corrugated punnets and trays have emerged as a game-changer in the realm of produce packaging. These innovative solutions offer a multitude of benefits that not only enhance the appeal of produce but also contribute significantly to sustainability efforts.
UNIPAKHELLAS’s line of corrugated punnets and trays, branded UNIFRUIT®, are sustainable and eco-friendly containers made from paperboard. They are highly customisable and printable, strong yet and lightweight. This packaging solution offers plenty of benefits that cater to both the agriculture producer and the end-consumer.
So, what are the advantages of corrugated punnets for packing fresh produce? And why should farmers and agriculture businesses adopt UNIFRUIT® for packaging their fruits and vegetables?
As sustainability gains prominence across industries, corrugated packaging shines as an eco-friendly option. Made from renewable resources, corrugated materials are biodegradable and recyclable, aligning with environmentally conscious practices. By adopting corrugated punnets and trays, farmers contribute to a greener future while appealing to eco-conscious consumers.
One of the most critical aspects of farm produce is maintaining freshness. Corrugated punnets and trays excel in this regard by providing excellent ventilation that prevents moisture buildup. This ensures that the fruits and vegetables remain at their peak quality, reducing spoilage and minimizing waste.
Protection and Durability
Corrugated punnets and trays offer a robust shield for delicate produce during transit and storage. The corrugated layers provide cushioning and protection against impacts, reducing the likelihood of bruising or damage. This translates to lower losses and greater product integrity.
Customization and Branding
Corrugated punnets and trays can be tailored to suit specific produce requirements and branding strategies. Whether adding handles to the trays for easier transport, or structurally innovating the punnets with smart ventilation slots, farmers and businesses can choose from various sizes, shapes, and designs to enhance the functional and visual appeal of their products. Custom printing options enable the integration of logos, labels, and information, effectively establishing a brand identity.

UNIFRUIT® from UNIPAKHELLAS have emerged as an effective method to enhance sustainability, presentation, and protection of fresh produce. For farmers and agriculture businesses, these packaging options offer a range of advantages that extend from embracing eco-conscious practices to preserving freshness.
