Spring has Sprung

Like yourselves, we have been working through the ‘lockdown’ so I would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers for your support and collaboration during these times when the supply chain is under enormous pressure, this is a great industry that we work in with many amazing people.

With spring not far away, it means the busy season for our Summer fruit customers. The season for most summer fruits is short although with more berries being grown under-cover, we are seeing an extension at both ends of the season for these fruits. Summer brings with it many kinds of fruit, bestowing our taste buds with some of the most refreshing flavours of the year. So, whether it's packing ice-cold watermelon for the beach, or lip-smacking cherries for a sweet afternoon picnic, here are my top five fruits to take advantage of during this summer season.

5. Raspberries

4. Peaches

3. Blueberries

2. Cherries

1. Watermelon

Are you ready for the coming season and how you are going to present your fruit to consumers who are considering the full lifecycle impacts of a packaged product and seeking out sustainable products? The message coming through loud and clear is the need to keep a careful balance between printing (to develop and build brand recognition and messaging) – and product visibility (quite a conundrum really). There are solutions out there and it’s not too late yet to explore, trial and move to them. Check out the below range of heat sealable range of r-PET and Fibre trays as well are carton board trays and boxes and give me a call if you want to discuss further or get samples?
