Plastic Container for Produce

Distribution of Fruits, Vegetables and Greens (FLVs) with

Maximum Efficiency, Savings and Cost Reduction

We have the plastic container for traceable and sanitized produce ideal for all your needs, as we offer different sizes and formats. By implementing the smart HB packaging solution in the distribution of your fruits, vegetables, and greens, you keep the food fresh, reduce damage and make much better use of the space during the transportation. 

According to the WHO, about 600 million people worldwide get sick after eating contaminated food every year. So, this brings up an extremely important issue for the distribution of fresh food: cross-contamination.  

In short, this contamination is about the transfer of pathogenic microorganisms between different foods. That is, a food that is already in advanced ripening process can contaminate a whole load, if the containers do not have the proper protection to avoid this contact. 

In this regard, for example, we have the case of transporting bananas with other foods. Just to illustrate, the banana produces a gas called ethylene, which stimulates ripening, including other fruit.

However, HB containers have improved ventilation, which helps to reduce the accumulation of ethylene gas. Furthermore, Food Safe plastic protects the food from contamination and with its resistance protects against external impacts, in addition to the rounded corner design that protects from internal friction during the transport.

Differentials of the Plastic Containers for Produce

96%

Less damage to FLVs because the container is anatomical and has stable stacking.

84%

Gain of space in the return, as the containers can be folded.

50%

More deliveries by the perfect fit and therefore allow super stacking.

Sanitized

The containers undergo automated sanitization and then are attested in each cycle.

Traceable

Each container has a unique identification code and a label holder that allows control.

Ventilated

It allows homogeneous circulation of air, prevents overheating, and also dissipates ethylene gas.

Food Safe

Produced in 100% virgin and non-toxic Food Safe plastic, recyclable and protects from contamination

In contrast to HB CONTAINERS, with the transport in CARDBOARD BOXES, food is at risk of contamination in several ways:

  • When the box gets wet or accumulates moisture.
  • In contact with other foods, in case of torn boxes.
  • The impact they suffer during the transport, especially because they do not fit in with each other.

And the same happens in wooden boxes.

Sanitized Plastic Container for Produce

Automated Sanitization

HB RETURNABLE PLASTIC CONTAINERS have automated sanitization before the start of the food delivery cycle, so any waste and chances of contamination by their use are eliminated. The sanitization is performed according to the requirements of HACCP and ANVISA and attested by laboratory reports. These tests, in turn, involve the microbiological assessment of the containers surfaces for coliforms, bacteria, molds, yeast, and salmonella.

A Single Container from the Field to the Gondola

Productivity and Protection

The HB returnable plastic container for FLVs can go from the field to the gondola avoiding tipping from one container in the field to another in the DC and again in the POS, thus maintaining the integrity of the products and generating time and productivity gains.

In addition, our containers arrive at the retailer ready for exhibition, as they become beautiful displays on the shelves of the point of sale.

Cycle with Environmental and Social Impact Reduction

Sustainability

Undeniably, this is also a sustainable choice for the distribution of your products. This is because each HB returnable plastic container is sanitized with only 160ml of treated water.  

In addition, 90% of the water is reused in the process, before going through the treatment of effluents and returning to nature.

The equipment has the capacity for the perfect sanitization of up to 4 thousand containers per hour. They are energy-efficient and consequently add much more sustainability to the supply chain. Still, in addition to all this efficiency, even the heat generated in the process is reused.

The containers are made of fully recyclable Food Safe plastic and reduce damage to products by up to 96% and food waste by 35%, in the dynamics of the food distribution.

In addition, there is a 60% reduction in CO2 emissions due to the perfect stacking and the folding parts in the return, mainly allowing the gain in cubic capacity with fewer trips and more deliveries.

Therefore, because they are not made of cardboard, the HB containers reduce by 86% the solid waste discarded in nature.
