PACKAGING OF THE MONTH: PUMPKIN

October is the month of pumpkin par excellence. In addition to being in full season, it is the time of the festival where it takes centre stage: Halloween.

Worldwide, more than 2 million hectares of pumpkin are grown each year and its growth has been increasing since 2007, not only due to the increasing population but also due to the increasing interest of consumers in healthy eating.

Pumpkin consists of 90% water and it is one of the vegetables with the fewest calories and carbohydrates. In turn, it stands out for being a rich source of folic acid, potassium, calcium and magnesium.

In the European Union, according to figures from 2018, Spain tops the ranking for the production of pumpkin, surpassing 100,000 tonnes, followed by France (96,000t), Germany (92,000t), Portugal (75,000t) and Poland (75,000t).

Obeikan MDF decided to commit to facilitating the transport and stacking of pumpkin and to solving its main obstacles: weight and size. This is why it is offering the sector a line of high-resistance packaging, with a solution that holds up to four units. Also, aware of the drop in the number of members in family units, it is also offering packaging for a single unit, 100% reusable.

Including the celebration of Halloween in our designs, at Obeikan we have different options, designs that highlight the terrifying nature of this festival and promise to triumph on the shelves of any retailer.
