Fruit and vegetable packages






Acta Horticulturae (55): 223-230

Fruit and vegetable packages

If energy costs are high, French packaging costs of all kinds will increase in price faster than fruit and vegetables. If energy costs are low, the price of wooden packing materials will increase faster than fruit and vegetables while costs of plastics and cartons will increase at an equal rate. 3 solutions to price increases are discussed - package standardization, increase in package volume, and package re-use.
