TP punnets: packaging opportunities for the soft fruit sector
The TP sealpunnets from Bordex has an effective design and it is very versatile. This new series enables Bordex to respond to the benefits and the increased demand for the top-sealing of punnets – the trend in the AGF sector, instead of the traditional lids. The savings in lids alone gives a reduction in costs. Other packaging costs such as labour are also considerably reduced, and in addition waste is minimised.
The sealed packaging for strawberries, raspberries or other types of soft fruit can also be provided with a label. This gives them the perfect appearance and makes for excellent presentation on the shelves. The soft fruit punnets are relatively lightweight, manufactured from APET (supplemented with rPET), crystal clear and unbreakable. The new series is available in two different sizes. The dimensions correspond to the current standard sizes in the market and are therefore a good choice with respect to logistics. With the top-seal options they are the perfect packaging solution for the soft fruit sector.
Because fresh vegetables and fruit require oxygen, the base is provided with ventilation holes as usual. As a ‘one-stop packaging provider’ Bordex Packaging can also offer various film solutions. For example one interesting option is the combination with perforated Mylar top film, creating the optimum atmosphere in the packaging and thus guaranteeing a long shelf life. Our manufacturing facility in Italy produces both standard sizes and custom-made AGF packaging for all types of vegetables and fruit.
