Sharpak to highlight extended range at Fruit Focus

22 July 2011

Sharpak, designer and manufacturer of thermoformed rigid food packaging, will be exhibiting its 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 a 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.

We have added the SPSAir 56 to our family of SPSAir punnets. We were 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. We can now offer 6 depths: SPSAir 40, 50, 56, 60, 70 and 85.

In addition we have 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.

We have 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.

These will sit amongst a vast range of fruit punnets and table ready, multi cavity and varied bespoke packs – most of which contain up to 80 per cent recyclate from post-consumer waste.

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.”

The design brief for this product was to bring ‘bag in box’ wine into the 21st century. In order to do so, it was decided that wine in a box had to become ‘fashionable’. With the knowledge that 8 out of every 10 bottles of wine bought to drink at home are bought by women plus the knowledge that handbags are at the top of a woman’s most wanted list, the Vernissage Wine Handbag was, without doubt, the most obvious fashion choice.Full Story...
