Cascades has launched new produce basket designs for the produce sector that are reportedly made from up to 100 percent recycled fibres. These new produce baskets with flaps offer produce growers a sustainable alternative to replace more hard-to-recycle packaging.

Designed according to recognized eco-design principles, these products are in keeping with a circular economy approach, shares Cascades. By using recycled and recyclable corrugated cardboard in its design, the company is reportedly supporting its customers by reducing their environmental impact while meeting consumer demand for increasingly environmentally friendly packaging.

The company notes that innovative packaging design prevents consumers from handling products and helps keep fruits and vegetables intact throughout the logistic chain. They include a closure system that prevents products from falling, without compromising visibility inside the packaging.


“These new corrugated basket formats for fresh fruit and vegetables enhance our innovative product offering for the produce sector, while allowing us to continue to meet the highest standards of environmental responsibility,” said Charles Malo, president and chief operating officer of Cascades Containerboard Packaging.
