Agriculture market introduction

Protect and preserve fresh produce with innovative returnable packaging

Since 1970, Schoeller Allibert has been providing innovative and sustainable packaging solutions for use in agricultural logistics. The supply chain for fruit and vegetables is extremely demanding, requiring packaging to protect delicate items and maintain freshness at every stage of the supply chain – during harvest, storage, processing, distribution and at the point of sale.

High quality, well-designed transit packaging helps to prevent unnecessary waste, ensures food safety, increases profitability and reduces the environmental impact of complex global supply chains.

Schoeller Allibert manufactures strong and durable, reusable and returnable packaging that responds to all these challenges and can withstand the harsh environments that the agricultural sector operates within, without compromising on efficiency. Our solutions are also suitable for horticulture, fruit juice production and viticulture.

Our range of solutions are fully recyclable and include rigid pallet containers (RPCs) in various standard footprints; stackable and stack/nest crates; foldable small containers (FSCs); foldable large containers (FLCs); plastic pallets and intermediate bulk containers (IBCs).

Schoeller Allibert containers and crates help to protect fresh produce items and ingredients from damage in transit and contamination from dirt, insects or rodents. They are also built to withstand extreme heat, humidity or wet weather conditions, which can cause softening, wilting and other types of product quality deterioration.

Additionally, our packaging solutions are manufactured from plastic meaning they are easy to handle and retain stable dimensions and weight in all weather conditions.

Schoeller Allibert’s has a unique EFSA-approved recycling process. That means that all our recyclable containers and crates can be made into brand new food contact-approved packaging at the end of their service life. This initiative ensures our customers can incorporate strong and demonstrable sustainability practices higher in their supply chain.

Making plastic packaging too good to waste
–Ludo Gielen - CEO

In a world that depends upon logistics and transport, all shipped in packaging materials, we need to reduce the environmental stress caused by packaging waste. At Schoeller Allibert, we believe RTP (returnable plastic packaging) systems are the answer. We are at the forefront of this revolutionary development.

In Practice:

  • We produce 100% recyclable packaging. We can also make food contact recycled products thanks to the EFSA positive opinion.
  • We design our products in order to optimise their lifespan ( up to 10 years in industrial conditions).
  • Our production processes contribute to CO2 reduction.
  • Using our products guarantees safe transport of your goods (UN homologation) by road, rail, and air.

Recycle your packaging

Schoeller Allibert offers its clients recycling knowledge and services. We offer full support and can take care of collecting, recycling and re-using returnable packaging materials that are ready for replacement. The products that are recycled at our facilities can even be safely used as food packaging.For this purpose, EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) provided scientific advice and approval to our recycling process installed on three of our sites in the Netherlands, Germany, and Spain.
