Cascades has announced the launch of a new closed basket made of recycled and recyclable corrugated cardboard for the produce sector. 

Designed using recognized eco-design principles, this product is in keeping with a circular economy approach. By using recycled corrugated cardboard in its design, Cascades is supporting its customers efforts to reduce their environmental impact while meeting consumer demand for increasingly eco–friendly packaging.

The new design allows for flat shipping, thereby reducing transportation costs and the need for storage space. A mounting jig, designed specifically for both basket formats (2l and 3l), will also speed up and simplify operations for producers.


The closed corrugated basket for fresh fruits and vegetables recently pre-qualified for the How2Recycle program, making it easier for producers to obtain certification.
