SAFETECH ’S Easy Wrapper Stretch Tape 1 has helped pallet containment for avocadoes shipped around Australia.

Previously, avocadoes were packed in Queensland for national shipping and the current pallet containment methods were either too expensive or resulted in excessive product damage due to the "sweating" of the produce when wrapped in conventional stretch film.

With stretch film, containment was inadequate and product damage excessive.

Netting with corner boards was very expensive and very unpopular with customers due to the difficulties removing netting and problems with netting becoming entangled in machinery.

A Queensland avocado grower consequently chose Safetech Stretch Tape Easy Wrapper, because of its elimination of sweating and product damage, increased shelf life for avocadoes, lower total wrapping cost and safety of wrapping using machine versus manual application.
