IFCO RPCs go straight from producer to Point of Sale (POS), reducing labor, storage space and packaging waste along the way. Quick and easy to replace in fresh produce departments, saving you time and money.
‘One-touch’ means that once the producer places the produce in a container, no one touches it again until a shopper selects it at the Point of Sale (POS). Think of fresh peaches in IFCO’s one-touch system: they are first placed in the RPC at the farm. They then travel through the supply chain to the POS without having to be handled again. Because an IFCO RPC is display-ready, it can go straight to the shop floor. No need for unpacking, repacking or shelf-stacking.
Shoppers perceived the food in RPCs as being fresher and of higher quality than the food in disposable packaging. They also saw RPCs as more hygienic. Overall, they said they would rather shop from RPC displays, and some even said they were willing to pay more.
