RED SUN FARMS: For this fall’s harvest, Red Sun Farms, Kingsville, Ontario, plans to introduce fully compostable packaging for its organic grape tomatoes. Kenneth Todd (left), produce category manager for Delhaize America Inc., discusses a prototype of the packaging with Red Sun U.S. sales director Harold Paivarinta. Paivarinta says the recyclable fiberboard containers are more consistent with the overall thinking of organic consumers. The containers have resealable topseal lid film and include 20% recycled cardboard. By Coral Beach
