Produce Packaging Automation

Produce packaging automation has become a key aspect for efficient and timely produce packaging. New automation technology has opened high-speed packaging possibilities, allowing growers and packers to achieve increased operational efficiencies and greatly reduce the time to market.

Top seal packaging machines utilize heat and other methods to apply film lids to trays of varying depths, sizes, and substrates.

Flow wrap packaging machines use applied heat to seal the bottoms and ends of a roll of film creating a horizontal bag.

Linerless label applicators utilize weigh scales for variable-weight products to then apply labels without liners.

Shrink wrapping machines use temperature-sensitive films to tightly cover your product when heat is applied.

Strapping machines use bands of flat steel or plastic to secure loads on a pallet of product to prepare for transport.

Stretch wrapping uses stretchable plastic film to secure loads on a pallet of product to prepare for transport.

Produce Packaging Consumables and Innovations

We provide growers with packaging that not only looks good but improves product shelf life. Proper produce packaging provides protection from physical damage, light, air, and temperature changes that can cause spoilage. Technologies within the packaging are also available including biaxially oriented polypropylene film (BOPP) film packaging, modified atmosphere packaging (MAP), eco-friendly materials, and more.


GrowPack lidding films can
include tamper-evident technologies and are capable of printing in custom formats to represent your brand. Our top seal films are also offered in resealable format.

Flow wrap films are often
made from custom manufactured BOPP films, which are one of the most popular plastic films today.
