Most significantly, the French arm of global supplier UNIVEG Katopé has overhauled its pallet supply arrangements, and now ships between 1,200 and 2,000 LPR pallets a week from its sites in
Avignon and Rungis. More than 90,000 tonnes of fruit and vegetables will be shipped each year from Rungis alone.
UK managing director, Jane Gorick, adds: "The fresh produce sector is highly competitive and consumers increasingly demand that their fruit and vegetables reach them in pristine condition. LPR offers a special range of fresh food pallets, which are collected, sorted and repaired, (if necessary), after every trip."
