Research indicates that fruit stays fresh for three days longer in corrugated trays than in reusable plastic crates
Corrugated packaging makes fresh produce last longer because it prevents contamination. This is due to the very high temperatures applied during the manufacturing process, which are generally between 180°C and 200°C. The material itself reaches temperatures of at least 100°C three times: once during the manufacture of the paper itself, and twice during the process of conversion to corrugated board. The result is packaging that is clean and hygienic. This in turn avoids food spoilage during transport, in warehouses and supermarkets, and at the consumer’s home.
