Partnership key to fresh produce year-round
Pure Flavor
Pure Flavor credits their partnership with IFCO as one of the keys to providing fresh produce to North America year-round.

After six years of using IFCO’s reusable plastic containers (RPCs), Leamington-based greenhouse vegetable grower Pure Flavor now applies this “smart packaging” on a wide range of produce, including tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and eggplants.

“Not only do they provide us with ‘smart packaging’ that protects and cools our products extremely well, they maximize our operational efficiency by ensuring we have an adequate supply of RPCs year-round, even during peak growing seasons,” said Jason Veno, Packaging Operations Manager for Pure Flavor. “That predictability means we can continue to serve our customers and their shoppers efficiently, effectively and on time.”

Using a forecasting model co-developed by IFCO and Pure Flavor, they can track orders and growing seasons to ensure that enough RPCs of the right type are delivered.

Over one million RPCs are used annually at Pure Flavor’s operations in Leamington, Michigan, San Antonio, Texas and Romulus.
