The line of packaging meets the needs of fresh fruit and vegetable marketers, according to a news release, while addressing consumers’ preferences for environmentally friendly packaging, according to a news release.

The new products use different types of recovered cardboard and plastics, for eco-friendly recycled and 100% recyclable containers for use in produce packaging. Cascades Fresh includes trays made from a variety of materials and corrugated cardboard baskets, boxes and a number of sturdiness and leak-proof options, according to the release.

“With the launch of Cascades Fresh, we are refining our service offering and reaffirming our leading position in the growing packaging solutions market, all while enabling consumers to eat fresh,” Charles Malo, president and chief operating officer of Cascades Containerboard Packaging, said in the release. “As enjoying food is part of our daily lives, our aim with these solutions is to make it easier to get fresh food to the table while also minimizing the impact on the environment.”
