BelleHarvest introduces earth-friendly sustainable packaging

BelleHarvest, Belding, Michigan-based apple distributor, continues to push the limits of the apple industry by introducing new 100% recyclable, sustainable packaging. The earth-friendly cartons are an industry first and just launched this month.

According to a news release, the new packaging is not only an environmentally smart choice, but also effectively prevents the apples from bruising or shuffling by providing a dense layer of protection compared to the traditional plastic packaging. As an added benefit, the handle allows for quick grab & go accessibility for time strapped consumers.

“Consumers see paper & paper-based packaging as a sustainable, trusted choice,” said Angela Sommers, Marketing Director of BelleHarvest. “In fact, we know that 69% of consumers prefer paper-based product packaging to packaging from plastic. This is a natural shift for our business as we respect and rely upon the health and safety of the environment to ensure nutritious and flavorful apples are available now and well into the future.”

The 3-pound cartons are available in three popular apple varieties:

  • Fuji: floral and berry flavor, stands out in salads, and stays crisp for weeks.
  • Honeycrisp: colossal crunch followed with juicy sweetness, superior snacking experience.

Gala: savory sweet bliss, perfect for juicing, cooking or snacking, and features a remarkable aroma
