The Client: Mexican Produce Grower
The Challenge: New packaging solution for a new product
With the introduction of a new product line, this Mexican grower saw an opportunity to improve their carbon footprint and product quality. To meet growing demand for eco-friendly packaging options, they needed a packaging solution that wouldn’t interfere with current operations but could also be scaled for other product lines.
The solution needed to be innovative, scalable, industry-leading, and eco-friendly.
The Solution: Eclipse SL4 Motion fully automatic Tray Sealer
Crawford Packaging, our partner in USA, Mexico and Canada, suggested upgrading to the Packaging Automation Eclipse SL4 Motion, the grower had the potential to use over 15% less plastic and pack produce at speeds up to 80 packs per minute.
The Result: Reduced Waste and Reduced Labour
Reduced Waste : With a 15% reduction in plastic consumption, the grower can drastically reduce overall waste — and save money simultaneously.
Reduced Labour: Prior to using the SL4, each clamshell package had to be manually closed by a line worker. Now, thanks to the automation of the top sealing, labour can be better used in other areas of the grower’s facilities.
