As a successful 3PL for Artisan butchers and food producers, this company was looking for ways to provide economical and environmentally friendly packaging for frozen and fresh food deliveries. This company’s core customers are more conscience of environmental impacts of business and actively request sustainable solutions. The primary concern voiced by the customers of the artisan butchers and food producers has been the use of extruded polystyrene (EPS) coolers and the lack of sustainability and recyclability.
Our ISTA certified thermal professionals developed several options to provide a paper-based cooler solution which met the demand for frozen and fresh food deliveries up to 4 days. These environmentally friendly, sustainable, biodegradable, and 100% recyclable coolers were tested in Ranpak’s on sight environmental chambers to ensure they met the customer’s stringent shipping requirements.
“We have a small facility so real estate is precious – being able to make thermal pads/cooler components on demand is crucial and has opened up space to take on more clients.”
The company is now using WrapPak PS pads to create their insulated coolers as well as FillPak TT to improve package performance and reduce non-perishable shipment damages. The ability to make the pads on demand has opened up additional warehouse space allowing them to take on additional clients. Also, the paper based solution has been well received and accepted by their existing customers who were very happy in the elimination of the EPS coolers.
