Innovation & Bespoke

As the requirements of the Fresh Produce industry change, the products Produce Packaging offers its customers reflects this.


Produce Packaging is delighted to announce that it will be the exclusive distributor of Earthcycle packaging from Canadian manufacturer CKF Inc. in England, Scotland and Wales.

CKF's thermoformed moulded pulp line Earthcycle is certified home compostable, widely  recyclable in the UK waste paper stream and is plastic free. According to the company it has been proven in trials that the Earthcycle punnets match automation speeds of plastic punnets for de-nesting and offers a consistent and strong bond in top - sealing systems.

In shelf and transit trials, the firm claimed, it has been shown that packaged in Earthcycle, produce stays fresher for longer- 20 per cent longer than when packed in plastic.

Made from a blend of virgin and post- industrial recycled wood pulp, Earthcycle is made with either FSC-controlled or FSC- certified wood sourced from "low risk" areas of Canada and the US. Transit time to Produce Packaging's Lincolnshire and Kent warehouses from the CKF plant is only 12 days.

"What initially attracted us to Produce Packaging were referrals from fresh produce packers and growers when we asked for details of the best packaging specialists in the UK," said Brad Dennis, vice president of sales and marketing for CKF. "We then quickly realised that Produce Packaging is a quality organisation with a wide distribution network and deep connections to the grower and retailer communities."

Mark Tierney, managing director of Produce Packaging, added: "Produce Packaging is thrilled to be working with CKF and more specifically the Earthcycle range of packaging. We see where the trend for reducing plastic in the packaging industry is going, and it is important for our company to be on the forefront of bringing innovation to our clients.

"We believe that the Earthcycle line is superior in its design, finish and quality and so offers our clients the ability to easily incorporate the packaging into existing automatic de-nesting, top seal and other packaging format lines."
