Vegpro, the largest fresh baby lettuces producer in Canada, and Cascades have established a partnership aimed at replacing all Fresh Attitude salad containers, traditionally made from virgin plastic, with 100% recycled and recyclable plastic containers. Custom-designed for Vegpro by Cascades, these containers are manufactured at the Cascades Inopak plant in Drummondville, Québec. The two companies have teamed up to offer consumers a container with a smaller environmental footprint that also helps to extend the shelf life of salads. The containers improve airflow and prolong conservation time by limiting the build up of excess humidity. This way, the baby lettuces remain fresh and crisp longer.
Sappi Europe announces a price increase for all its containerboard grades by 8 – 10% for deliveries from 1 July 2021.
The ongoing sharp rise in raw material costs, particularly pulp, chemicals and energy in combination with high freight rates make price adjustments unavoidable.
Sappi’s sales team will be in contact with customers to discuss the detail and support the implementation.
