In addition to loosely laid goods, Elbe-Obst offers its customers in Germany and abroad individual packaging.
Elbe-Obst packaging is available for the complete range. Food containers as well as 3-kilogram baskets and 5-kilogram cartons are most commonly used in supermarkets for pome fruits such as apples and pears. Cherries are usually delivered to retailers in 5-kilogram cartons with lids or 500-gram bowls.
Pome fruit assortment
Elbe-Obst offers the traditional products for sale. In addition to seasonal packaging for Easter, Halloween and Christmas, the retailer can also offer event-related units on topics such as football, the Olympics, soccer, etc. Whether food container, basket, crate or box – the creative employees ensure a quick implementation according to requirements.
A new series for the retailer are the packagings „Food Trends“. It is widely known that apples have been on everyone’s mind for a long time. However, pome fruit usually also fits in with current food trends. Elbe-Obst therefore developed the appropriate packaging for its retail partners.
In the organic sector, more and more biodegradable products are being used in addition to ecologically produced packaging.
Elbe-Obst is committed to supplying not only the best fruit, but also packaging that meets the demands of consumers.
The berries have a quick turnaround time due to their short shelf life. The fruit is usually harvested in the early morning hours in order to be available for customers in the supermarkets in the mid-morning.
Since the fruits are very delicate, they are harvested directly from the field into the appropriate packaging units. For this purpose, trays up to 500 grams are usually available.
Elbe-Obst cultivates cherries, now mostly under a cover, and plums. While the cherries are mainly sold under the Naturoral brand in 2- or 5-kilogram cartons or 350-gram containers, the plums are sold in bulk of five kilograms or in 1-kilogram containers.
