- Corrugated fiberboard: Versatile corrugated fiberboard can be manufactured in many weights, styles and configurations. That, combined with its affordability and recyclability, makes it a popular choice for boxing and shipping produce.
- Mesh bags: Oranges, potatoes and onions are often packaged in mesh bags. The mesh material allows uninhibited air flow, is usually affordable and displays well in retail establishments.
- Pallet bins and boxes: Oversized cardboard, wooden or plastic pallet bins are mainly used during harvesting to move produce from the orchard or farm field to the packing houses. However, some supermarkets sell locally sourced produce, such as sweetcorn or pumpkins, in their stores directly from the bins.
- Pulp containers: Recycled paper pulp combined with a starch binder can form biodegradable boxes for blueberries and raspberries. These containers are highly suitable for berries and small fruit because they absorb surface moisture.
- Custom paperboard packaging: As plastic clamshell packaging continues to fall out of favor with eco-conscious consumers, food packagers are turning to custom boxes that can be folded by the consumer in the store and then filled with bulk berries and small vegetables. Consumers like the ability to purchase only the amount they need and the recyclability of the cardboard. Distributers like the printability of the paperboard packaging.
