In addition, through the presentation of PP transparent boxes and bags, consumers can easily learn about the freshness of products. The degree of effective promotion of cherry product sales.
Eastlake pointed out that there is still much work to be done in Australia's fruit shops, especially in the retail sector, because consumers are always accustomed to touching before deciding whether to buy the product. Eastlake also stressed: "The prepackaged approach to fruit is now widely used in the Australian market and consumer markets around the world, but for growers, the biggest challenge is to ensure that fruit is delivered after fruit packaging. Will not be damaged.Growers must continue to cooperate with distributors, pay attention to the follow-up quality of fruit.The current trend in the industry is directly imported PVC plastic box packaged fruit products, importers have also recommended exporters and PP box Companies cooperate together so that future export procedures will be more flexible and flexible.
