Advances in packing can boost efficiency & profits
Few consumers are aware of what a monumental undertaking it is for over 200 million bushels of apples to be packed every year in the U.S. and Canada. Anything that helps apple packers minimize losses and maximize pack-out quality is a huge boon. That’s what Arctic® apples do.
- Decreased visibility of surface damage from bin rub, handling, and packing line bruising
- Higher quantity and quality of fruit being packed into the box
- Varieties like Arctic® Golden don’t require being warm-packed (more flexibility & lower costs)
- Less shrink resulting from handling damage associated with storage and shipping
