The Newest Innovation in Convenience Packaging for Produce. From Crawford’s GrowPack.

In a recent post, we explored the top three consumer demands driving produce packaging trends. The demand for convenience has seen rapid growth, with no sign of slowing down. 66 percent of FPA survey respondents said easy storage packaging was important to them, and 60 percent said easy opening packaging was important.[1] To help Growers and Retailers meet this consumer demand, we have expanded our offering to include new clamshell packaging designs.

Introducing the New GrowPack Easy Pour Clamshells

These new clamshells are the latest innovation in produce packaging designed for convenience and snacking. Designed with one footprint and three different depths, these clamshells have an easy corner pop-up pressure opening system. This easy opening system allows consumers to open the corner of the clamshell lid and pour out contents for snacking. The corner pop-up opening system enhances convenience for consumers and creates the ideal package for easy washing, storage and snacking. GrowPack Easy Pour Clamshells are perfect for several types of fruit and vegetable packaging, including blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, cherries, and tomatoes.
