Branch Leads Industry by Moving to Sustainer Cartons
South Bay, Fla. - June 24, 2015 -Branch: A Family of Farms
continues being a leader in its category through the use of
sustainer cartons. Wire-bound boxes are a thing of the past as
Branch finds success in new packaging.
When looking at the reasons to move to sustainers, the answer
was clear. Sustainers are sturdier and more easily-stackable, light
weight and space efficient, allowing 8-10% more cases per load,
which saves on freight costs. Additionally, sustainers are more
food safety compliant than wire-bound boxes as they are more
resistant to bacteria. Finally, they are recyclable and
eco-friendly, an aspect that is at the core of the founding
principles at Branch.
"Since we introduced sustainer boxes in our operations, the
market response has been substantial," said Brett Bergmann,
president of Branch. "We are very happy with this packaging
solution, especially knowing we can present our products in a
better way to our customers."
Since 1957, our founding principles still drive us at Branch:
integrity, quality, service, - a commitment to our industry and the
sustainability of our environment. As a family owned and operated
business, we are a premier grower, packer, shipper of sweet corn in
the United States also offering our customers green beans, leafy
greens, radishes and celery.
