Reusable plastic container company IFCO and supply chain solutions provider/pallet company CHEP are touting their role in the fresh produce supply chain.

The company lists a number of recent success stories of produce companies using CHEP and IFCO services, including Tanimura & Antle, Salinas, Calif.; Pure Flavor, Leamington, Ontario; and Grimmway Farms, Bakersfield, Calif.

“Our platforms, containers and supply chain solutions, combined with our expertise and global network advantage, form a winning combination that helps growers meet their marketplace and social responsibility goals,” Rick Overholt, CHEP director of sales-Produce, in a news release.

CHEP and IFCO parent company Brambles details its environmental stewardship agenda in an annual review, and has a set of 2020 sustainability goals.

The companies showcased their supply chain solutions at the Viva Fresh Expo April 7 in Austin, Texas.
