Goplasticpallets.com and Goplasticboxes.com will be returning to Fruit Focus this year on stand 43 to promote the benefits of its plastic fruit trays and growers’ crates, which have been specially designed to help keep fruit fresher for longer.
Ben Messingham, the company’s UK Sales Manager, said: “Small ventilation holes in the sides and base of our fruit trays and growers’ crates allow positive airflow, keeping produce cool and preserving their condition for longer. This means that growers can rest assured that their fruit will remain in the best possible condition from the moment it is picked, punneted, and packaged off to the processing plant.
“We will be demoing a variety of versatile trays and crates on stand 43 at Fruit Focus and welcome you to join us.”
Three fantastic products that will be on show include the GoBox 1230 raspberry tray, the GoBox 1251 strawberry tray and the GoBox 5351 growers’ crate.
Measuring 600mm (L) x 400mm (W) x 80mm (H) and weighing just 1.03kgs, growers can safely strap the GoBox 1230 raspberry tray around their waist and pick small fruits, such as raspberries and blackberries, directly into punnets loaded in the tray. The raspberry trays can then be easily stacked and loaded into a trailer for delivery to the processing plant.
Another popular choice among berry growers is the GoBox 1251 strawberry tray, which offers a simple solution for picking in the field with its ventilated walls and ergonomic hand holes. Measuring 600mm (L) x 400mm (W) x 120mm (H), this tray has a strong, durable base and straight-sided walls that help hold punnets securely in place to prevent the strawberries getting crushed under weight.
Competitively priced the GoBox 5351 growers’ crate is hugely versatile with a bale arm lever that moves forward and back to allow positive stacking or nesting. When nested the crate saves 76 per cent space, ensuring minimal wastage space in storage and on return journeys.
Other products available for demonstration on stand 43 include additional berry trays in different sizes, seed trays, folding boxes and nestable pallets, which are useful for keeping plants off the ground.
Fruit Focus, the industry’s premier fruit event, will be taking place on 22nd July in East Malling, Kent.
