Retail packaging for produce

Our focus

  • Product focus: fruits and  vegetables
  • Client focus: packers serving retail clients, international retailers
  • Packaging type: differentiated products with focus on: trays, film, bags and netting, made from plastic, paper, cellulose, fibres, cardboard and wood


Our approach

Packaging plays a crucial role in avoiding food waste and keeping your produce fresh. Fresh produce presents a unique challenge for packaging materials as fruit and vegetables continue to respire after harvesting. Matching the correct packaging to the product is vitally important to extending shelf life. Produce packaging plays different roles in business-to-business (B2B) and retailer-to-consumer delivery (B2C) In urban areas, produce loss occurs mostly during the retailer-to-consumer exchange, and in rural areas, more produce is lost from farms to retailers. In both situations, reducing food waste by extending produce shelf life is critical. Consumers, retailers and growers are all looking for sustainable packaging solutions that produce less waste and offer a more environmentally-friendly option, without compromising pack quality. NNZ has a broad standard portfolio to pack your fruits and vegetables to cover these needs. In addition, we invest in innovation and can assist you to make a fact based choice your sustainable packaging portfolio.

Our approach

The logistics of transporting fresh produce is very complex, packaging plays a crucial role to extend shelf life. Fresh produce presents a unique challenge for packaging materials as fruit and vegetables continue to respire after harvesting. Matching the correct packaging to the product is vitally important to extending shelf life. The logistics of transporting large volumes of potatoes and vegetables is very complex, and NNZ works together with growers and farmers so that the produce can make it to the end user in perfect condition. We take into account packaging, temperature, humidity, and other factors to ensure the produce stays fresh and intact.

Potatoes and onions, cabbage, turnips, citrus, and some specialty items are typically packed in mesh bags. In addition to its low cost, mesh has the advantage of uninhibited air flow. Good ventilation is particularly beneficial to onions. For export of potatoes burlap bags are still the packaging material of choice as these have the advantages of superior moisture absorbance, good ventilation and being soft to the skin of the potatoes. Ventilated bulk bags are most efficient for storage of produce like potatoes and carrots.
