Three additional major produce growers have started shipping to Walmart in wood grain reusable plastic containers (RPCs) from Polymer Logistics. Agroexport LLC / Villita Avocados, Moonlight Companies and Wawona Packing Co. join Grimmway Farms, Calavo Growers, Pure Hothouse Foods, Gerawan Farming, Bee Sweet Citrus and others using Polymer RPCs to support Walmart’s new produce merchandising program.

“We’ve been collaborating with Walmart and Polymer Logistics on the launch of the new wood grain RPCs. The process has been very smooth and the service from Polymer Logistics has been outstanding. Custom packaging is a specialty of Wawona’s. Joining forces with Polymer Logistics was a natural fit”

 

Wood grain RPCs from Polymer Logistics are highlighted in the newly redesigned produce departments at Walmart stores across the United States. The retailer is converting many of its produce departments by November 2016 to look like traditional country farmers markets. The ongoing deployment of the wood grain RPCs is providing a uniform merchandising look in stores and has been a core focus for Polymer since trials in Walmart Supercenters in early 2015.

“We are pleased to be working with such a great group of growers to back Walmart’s innovative new produce merchandising effort. We see wood grain RPCs expanding very quickly within the Walmart supply chain and beyond to other retail customers,” said Gideon Feiner, CEO of Polymer Logistics.

“Customers are signing up for the wood grain RPC program at a rapid pace and our operations group is working hard to keep up with the demand. The feedback we’ve been receiving is that the quality of our containers and our comprehensive customer service offering is attracting new growers across the country,” said Tony Mosco, Vice President – Sales at Polymer Logistics.

“We’ve been collaborating with Walmart and Polymer Logistics on the launch of the new wood grain RPCs. The process has been very smooth and the service from Polymer Logistics has been outstanding.
