GoPlasticBoxes @ Fruit Focus

Goplasticboxes.com and Goplasticpallets.com will return to Fruit Focus this year on stand 92 to urge fruit growers and retailers to put hygiene first when selecting containers and pallets.
Russell Smith, Business Development Manager of Goplasticboxes.com, said: “Wooden pallets have recently come under scrutiny in the United States following an examination of 140 wooden pallets in which 33% tested positive for foodborne pathogens including the deadly bug, Listeria. Cardboard containers present similar safety concerns, as they are more susceptible to mould than other packaging materials.
“If you grow and handle fruit, it’s advisable to consider using more hygienic alternatives for storing and transporting fresh produce, like plastic containers and pallets, to ensure you are not putting yourself, your staff and potential customers at risk.”
The UK’s leading independent suppliers of plastic containers and pallets will be exhibiting a range of plastic field to pack-house products on stand 92 including hygienic pallets, hygienic fruit crates, soft fruit trays and boxes that nest, stack and fold.
Also on show will be the GoBox 2500 CL – a foldable crate which makes virtually no sound when erected or folded down, to reduce noise pollution in food packing areas, and is only available in the UK through Goplasticboxes.com.
Plastic boxes and pallets offer many advantages for the storage and transportation of all types of fresh produce. They are more hygienic than alternatives, with no nails, splinters or contamination issues, longer lasting, easy to clean and dry, weather-resistant, 100% size and weight consistent, environmentally friendly, and their durability ensures a sound financial investment.
