packaging for export
Avocados exported from the Netherlands are stored for weeks in a cold, damp container with a relatively lower temperature of around 4 to 5 degrees Celsius, which is significantly lower compared to many other fruit and vegetable products. Poorly constructed packaging runs the risk of collapsing under these conditions. This is a serious problem in many avocado exporting countries. It is therefore essential to distribute avocados in moisture-resistant packaging with a solid construction.
Avocado packaging of solid board
Avocado packaging is produced from solid board, just like all other packaging by Smart Packaging Solutions. Solid board has an extremely high density, which makes it very strong and compact and therefore suitable for the production of well-constructed packaging, which can be stacked higher and with greater stability. The high density of the material also ensures that the packaging is moisture-resistant, which makes it suitable for transport at low storage temperatures. Solid board packaging therefore meets all the essential requirements for avocados.
These days, avocado packaging does not only serve a protective function, but also a marketing function. Customized packaging plays an increasingly important role. Solid board is distinguished by its considerable flatness, which makes it very easy to print on. This is another reason why this form of packaging material is preferable to corrugated board, for example, which is a lot harder and more expensive to print on.
