The leading provider of retail-ready packaging (RPP) solutions invites attendees to discover how the company’s hygienic and lightweight solutions enhance the potato supply chain
Every two years the Potato Industry unites for the UK’s unique ‘seed to shopping trolley’ event – BP2019. The show, to be held at the Yorkshire Event Center, provides exceptional networking and business opportunities for all those involved in growing, handling, processing and retailing the crop in this £multi billion industry. Polymer Logistics will feature several solutions from its eco-friendly reusable packaging range at BP2019, including the Cleanpal plastic pallet, large folding containers and trays.
Lightweight Cleanpal plastic pallets deliver industry-leading hygiene, ergonomics and efficiency benefits. Polypropylene construction prevents the absorption of contaminants experienced with wood pallets while facilitating high-pressure cleaning. And weighing only half as much as wood, Cleanpal provides ease of manual pallet handling, while its dimensional accuracy enhances performance in automated systems. CleanPal is also nestable at a 3:1 ratio, tripling the efficiency of empty pallet storage, transportation and handling.
Polymer will also be showcasing its Folding Large Containers (FLCs) at the British Potato Exhibition. The result of innovative and advanced studies, the company’s FLCs are perfect for the storage, shipment and retail display of potatoes. Designed for ease of stacking, they save on storage space when loaded, while they can be folded to optimise space utilisation when empty. Featuring collapsible sides, they offer ease of access to material handlers and shoppers alike. Additionally, plastic FLCs, like other Polymer plastic products, provide superior hygiene and the elimination of solid waste associated with disposable packaging.
Polymer’s crate solutions will also be on display. Available in nestable and collapsible design, reusable plastic crates help eliminate the solid waste associated with corrugated containers while their superior ventilation and rugged design help to preserve freshness while eliminating the threat of product crush damage. Wood-look reusable crates also contribute to a pleasing retail presentation that has been proven to boost sales. Be sure to ask about Polymer’s seasonal crate hire and crate washing which can provide the benefits of reusable packaging without capital outlay.
Adrian Dale, Managing Director, Polymer Logistics: “BP2019 celebrates the latest innovations and best practices in the British Potato supply chain. As a leading provider of best-in-class handling solutions such as Cleanpal, folding large containers and reusable crates, Polymer Logistics looks forward to helping the potato supply chain reduce costs while cutting costs and improving both freshness, and food security.”
