Fresh Summit 2016 PMA

Fresh Summit 2017 will Feature Nature-Pack™ Compostable Packaging

Nature-Pack™ exhibits at the PMA’s annual Fresh Summit Convention + Expo for the first time.

One of the world’s largest industry events for the fresh produce and floral business is the Produce Marketing Association’s Fresh Summit. Name brands like Chiquita and Sunkist will be headlining the show alongside the largest suppliers of fresh flowers. Growers of all types from across the globe are represented, and this year Nature Pack will be joining them to showcase their newest innovations in plant-based, earth-friendly protective packaging for the food and flower industries. Find Nature-Pack in booth 4435.

The Nature-Pack™ line of biobased and compostable products is an innovative alternative to the fossil-based expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam shippers, such as “Styrofoam,” which is neither biodegradable nor compostable and has a devastating effect on our communities and waterways after its use because it simply won’t “go away.” Nature-Pack’s disposal options are unique to the packaging industry, and can easily be turned into valuable organic humus, providing superior soil nutrients versus synthetic chemical fertilizers used today.

What’s even better, the compostable foam by Nature-Pack™ performs just as well as traditional protective insulative packaging while outperforming competitors through ease-of-use during pack out. Plus it stores flat! This means bulk orders save money on shipping and take up less storage space.

The flagship of the Nature-Pack product line is the Biocooler®. This first-to-market cooler is the only compostable shipper that is FDA approved for direct food contact. This eco-friendly product is composed of a simple two-piece system that assembles in a few seconds. Customers may order standard sizes off the shelf or request a custom shipper of specific dimensions for their product. A unique line of Flower Shippers and Food Shippers have been developed by Nature-Pack, perfect for the Fresh Summit audience.

This technology is truly a game-changer for the cold chain packaging industry, and the unique line of Nature-Pack shippers will serve the food and flower industry well as the consumer demand for earth-friendly packaging continues to rise.
