6 reasons to choose IFCO RPCs for fruit & vegetables

Broadest product range

IFCO offers a wide range of RPCs optimized for fruit and vegetables, each available in a variety of sizes. All are based on a standard footprint, for efficient handling across the supply chain and the easy set-up of attractive Point of Sale (POS) displays.

Better protection

IFCO RPCs reduce product damage by over 96%, cutting down on food waste and ensuring higher quality produce in stores. They make secure stacking easy, meaning less damage to fresh produce throughout its journey.

Reduced costs

IFCO RPCs deliver 23–27% cost savings across the supply chain compared with disposable packaging. Factors contributing to those savings include reduced handling, storage, packaging waste and product damage.

Superior ventilation

Cooling times for fruit and vegetables in IFCO RPCs are reduced by 25 –50% compared with single-use packaging. And temperatures are more consistent during transport and storage, meaning your product arrives at the Point of Sale (POS) with optimum ripeness.

Ideal for retail

An IFCO RPC can go all the way through the supply chain and straight to the POS with no unpacking or repacking. And shoppers prefer to see RPCs in the retail space: 60% think that food displayed in RPCs is fresher than food displayed in disposable packaging.

More sustainable

IFCO RPCs produce up to 60% less CO2 and 86% less solid waste; they also use 64% less energy and 80% less water than single-use packaging.
