Faerch Plast Packaging Helps to Keep Chantenay Carrot Snacks Fresh For Lunchboxes

Specialist manufacturer of quality plastic packaging for the food industry, Faerch Plast is supplying a four-compartment tray to fresh produce company, Fresh Growers, for its new Chantenay Carrot Snack Packs. Produced from APET (Amorphous Polyethylene Terephthalate) with 50% recycled content and perforated to allow each of the four compartments to be separated and popped into a lunch box, the containers are currently on sale in the fresh produce section of Morrison’s supermarkets.

Comments Alan Hunt, commercial manager at Freshgro, a growers’ co-operative based near Nottingham: “We were looking for a new concept to provide a top quality alternative to baton carrots. A sample punnet produced by Færch Plast was just what we needed for the packaging.”

The snack packs of Chantenay carrots are available in two designs, one for children featuring cartoon character, Tiny C, and one for adults, with each of the four snap packs containing 60gms of sweet, sliced carrots.

The packs are currently filled by hand with the lids sealed on a PA automation machine, but as the product develops there are plans to fully automate the process.

Freshgro the only company able to supply the Chantenay slice at present giving the triangular carrot shape so distinctive of the variety.  Future plans for including a dip with the vegetables, as well as a punnet with five cavities, are at the development stage.

Since it was established in 1989, Faerch Plast has built an excellent reputation for high quality plastics packaging products, supplying major blue chip customers in the ready meal, fresh meat, cold foods and snacks, and ambient food sectors with a wide range of containers and trays produced from PS, CPET, APET, PP, PLA, MAPET® and AMPET®.

Danish parent company Faerch Plast has just announced plans to open a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in the North East of England. A large part of its production for the UK market will be moved to the new Durham-based plant as part of an on-going strategy to secure costs, improve efficiencies and minimise its environmental impact.

The company has acquired 14,000 square metres of factory buildings with a view to starting production in the summer of 2012. This key move will help improve operating efficiencies, shorten lead times and further strengthen the overall service provided to its rapidly expanding UK customer base.
