Banana Lift Locks
IFCO has announced the launch of its Banana Lift Lock crates that are specially designed for a secure transportation of bananas throughout the entire supply chain.
The Banana Lift Lock is expected to offer various advantages for the transportation of bananas on their often long overseas journeys, like a superior ventilation for faster cooling and optimal ripening, an increased strength for ultimate protection and an even better design to increase sustainability.
The Banana Lift Lock also offers advantages such as cooling bananas to the ideal temperature 33% faster than single-use packaging and holds the temperature 41% more consistently. Ventilation gaps ensure the optimal temperature is maintained within the banana crates even throughout overseas journeys. The ventilation is specially designed to ensure better airflow and greater, more efficient, control of the ripening process.
In addition to the specially designed ventilation, the unique weight-bearing design of the Banana Lift Lock protects bananas from damage and thereby helps to reduce food waste and increase shelf life.
The durable and easy to handle Banana Lift Locks are integrated into the IFCO SmartCycle, a model of circular economy that is based on the principals of sustainability and reusability. This model focuses on eliminating waste on all levels and reducing the carbon footprint of producers, distributors, ripening specialists and retailers.
