PACKAGING OF THE MONTH: ASPARAGUS

In Spain, asparagus has a short growing season, the right conditions are only met between the months of March and May. From then on, the product mostly comes from South America and, specifically, Peru.

Obeikan has designed packaging that is able to withstand the long distances that asparagus has to travel from the other side of the ocean in order to reach European borders in perfect condition. This packaging also has several ventilation holes and a design that helps to distinguish the product that is held within the box.

With this new format, Obeikan does not want to miss the opportunity and will travel to the Andean country to attend the next edition of the Expo Alimentaria fair, from 25 to 27 September, to exhibit its packaging and show its assembly process to the professional audience.

At its stand, E61.E62, it will be possible to see several examples of the aforementioned packaging as well as a new production machine that is being launched as part of the fair.

We will see you in Peru!

Obeikan attends the Global Berry Congress 2019

Obeikan MDF has attended as exhibitor the Global Berry Congress in its recent edition, held between the 25th and 27th  of March in the Dutch city of Rotterdam.

The event brought together more than 550 international professionals from the berry industry to discuss the current situation and future of this fruit category. With a very complete programme of presentations, in the congress there’s been representatives from retail and production to post-harvest treatments, machinery and packaging.

“We’ve stocked this fruit category since the company’s foundation. In fact, our first packages were designed for the marketing of strawberries”, recalled Salvador Martínez, General Manager of Obeikan.

Today, Obeikan is present in multiple international markets selling berries packaging. These include the UK, Ireland, Holland, Germany, Belgium, France, Spain, Portugal and Morocco, among others. “Obeikan is growing significantly in this category thanks to our specialty of small unit sales packages, with new formats and creative solutions tailored according to the client needs, helping them promote their product at the point of sale. In addition, we also have our new line of displays for promotion at the point of sale, the ideal complement for our modular packaging”, adds Martínez.

Obeikan’s firm commitment to the berries category, which together with the tropical category are experiencing the fastest growth in the world, is very much in tune with consumer trends – instead of only buying the product, consumers go further by looking for a consumer experience and taking into account the social responsibility of the product, where a sustainable use in packaging takes on special importance.
