Eco-friendly recycling and packaging solutions provider Cascades has launched its new range of Cascades Fresh packaging products for the fruit and vegetable industry.

Cascades Fresh packaging solutions have been designed for producers, packers and retailers.

The new range includes trays that are made from PETE, LDPETE and cardboard, baskets, carriers and corrugated cardboard boxes in addition to various sturdy and leakproof options.

The company leverages different types of cardboard and recovered plastics offering a full and multi-material range of eco-friendly, recycled and 100% recyclable products thereby reducing the environmental footprint of packaging.

Cascades new packaging line meets FDA and Health Canada’s food safety requirements and facilitates transportation across the supply chain.

Furthermore, the products preserve the freshness of fruits and vegetables.

Cascades containerboard packaging president and chief operating officer Charles Malo said: “Cascades has been providing eco-friendly solutions for the food industry for decades, including trays, cup carriers, boxes and a wide range of packaging for producers, wholesalers and retailers.

‘’With the launch of Cascades Fresh, we are refining our service offering and reaffirming our leading position in the growing packaging solutions market, all while enabling consumers to eat fresh.

“As enjoying food is part of our daily lives, our aim with these solutions is to make it easier to get fresh food to the table while also minimizing the impact on the environment.”

Cascades specialises in providing sustainable, innovative and value-added packaging, hygiene and recovery solutions. The company operates a network of 90 facilities across North America and Europe employing 12,000 people.

Last month, Cascades expanded its packaging solutions with a new product line categorised under the company’s cascades e.com packaging solutions.
