"The complete machine was supplied and fully installed"
Alexander Van Orshaegen - Group A. De Witte
Group A. De Witte is an international wholesale organisation in vegetables, fruits and exotics. With a turnover of 300 million Euro and 600 employees, it is the largest fruit and vegetable group in Belgium. Starpack is the group’s packaging company.
Starpack wants to implement sustainable packaging activities. This ambition is based on its personal conviction as well as increasing demand amongst consumers. Research showed that banding with the equipment and material of Bandall would offer the best solution.
Starpack has eliminated plastics and only uses recyclable packaging materials for the fruit and vegetable products that it bands. These materials — paper and cardboard — are part of the same group and can therefore be processed together in the waste stage. This is user-friendly for the consumers because they no longer have to sort the waste.
Marketing and communication manager Alexander Van Orshaegen: "The complete machine was supplied and fully installed". Cooperation also flowed smoothly after delivery: “The machines of Bandall help to maintain the quality of our products. Bandall reacts quickly to our questions and responds flexibly to our requests.”
"It is all about sustainability and the experience of fresh products"
Johannes Janssen - Fruit and vegetable wholesaler Johannes
Banding offers many advantages for marketing fruit and vegetable products. Fruit and vegetable wholesaler Johannes takes full advantage of these possibilities, and with great success too. For instance, Johannes was awarded the bronze medal at the Penta Packaging Awards 2020.
Everything that Johannes does is based on ecology: natural products, sustainable packaging, respect for nature. This conviction can go hand-in-hand with commercial success if all marketing possibilities are exploited. Packaging plays an integral role in the marketing of Johannes. Thanks to Bandall, Johannes is able to make the most of the available opportunities.
