AMCOR has introduced the first 7kg tray specifically designed for mangoes. Farmers, packers, agents and markets are heralding the tray as the best design to ever come out of Amcor.
Previous trays have been replicated from other fruit trays and have never been supported by the mango industry in Australia, Amcor says.
A specialised 7kg mango tray had never been made in Australia. The plix tray the industry had been previously using was actually for avocados and really wasn't ideal for mangoes.
After extensive trials Amcor, in conjunction with Qpak, decided to design a tray with an inner that is specifically designed to fit and transport mangoes.
The introduction of the new tropical mango tray has literally changed the shape of the market.
Barry Albrecht, owner of Arnhem Produce, had been pushing for packaging reforms in the mango industry for a number of years and was the first to start trialing the new tropical mango tray.
Barry now sees the Amcor tray as the best on the market and will not use any others for his produce.
