The opportunities to make a difference with the right materials in the fresh produce supply chain are clear and many. In summary, a fresh produce package needs to be able to cope with different climates, withstand heavy weights, cope with rough handling, arrive fresh and undamaged in an environmentally-friendly and resource-efficient way, ensuring consumers get perfectly ripe and fresh produce. At best, when on display, the packaging communicates the benefits of a plastic-free and low carbon material and fills yet another purchase criteria to the consumer.
Salvatore Sortino, Regional Sales Director Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa at Stora Enso Packaging Materials is responsible for Containerboards sales in a growing region. Together with his team, Salvatore is catering on the needs of demanding fresh food producers between the Atlantic shores of Morocco to the Pacific shores of the Philippines. Salvatore has background in forestry, and with his profound international experience, Salvatore summarizes the trends on fresh food packaging in this blog article. Today, Salvatore lives with his family in Helsinki.
