Sharpak to highlight extended range at Fruit Focus

28 June 2011

Sharpak, UK designer and manufacturer of thermoformed rigid food packaging, will be exhibiting its enhanced range of fruit packaging solutions at Fruit Focus 2011

Products from Sharpak’s parent company Groupe Guillin’s French, Italian and Spanish operations will be showcased. These include an extensive variety of fruit and vegetable punnets and an unrivalled range of stone and top fruit insert trays in Polypropylene and pulp fibre which accommodate exotic varieties such as kiwi fruits, peaches and mangos.

The company has added the SPSAir 56 to our family of SPSAir punnets. It was the first manufacturer to introduce vented holes in the sloping bases of soft fruit punnets reducing condensation and improving air flow even when the punnets are stacked. It now offers 6 depths: SPSAir 40, 50, 56, 60, 70 and 85.

In addition it has  developed a new 600gm strawberry punnet. Based on the successful SP400 size the new punnet is a deeper version of the 400 addressing consumer demand for promotional or heavier pack weights and also continues with the market requirement with the option for heat sealing or lidding.

It has expanded the standard SPS range with a 76mm deep punnet, with a new rib design which is lightweight and suitable for packing such items as grapes..

The Sharpak team will be on hand to demonstrate these products and more, at what promises to be a busy exhibition, showcasing a wide range of essential products and services at the fruit industry’s premier UK event.

Declan O’Sullivan, Managing Director of Sharpak Aylesham says, “Fruit Focus is a major event for us, and this year will be extra special. The addition of Groupe Gullin’s fruit range means our product portfolio has increased even further and we are excited about showcasing our latest developments in the world of fruit packaging.”
