Things are Heating Up

It’s officially spring, with summer not far away!

The season for most summer fruits is relatively short although, with more berries being grown under-cover, we are seeing an extension at both ends of the season for these and this ensures our retailers and end customers make the most of these popular crops. Summer brings with it many different 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 sustainably packaged products?

The message coming through is to tread a careful balance between printing – to develop and reinforce brand messaging – and product visibility. Quite a conundrum really!

There are solutions out there and its 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:
