Pioneer Growers Co-op, Belle Glade, Fla., is introducing an environmentally friendly version of its tray-packed sweet corn.
“We will have a new ‘Go Green’ package for our packaged sweet corn program that will take the foam tray out of the package completely,” vice president and sales manager J. D. Poole said.
Poole said packaging will roll out during a four-month period this year.
He said the company also has introduced a new packaged green bean line.
“We have the capability to pack in any retail or foodservice pack imaginable,” he said of the year-round program.
