PerfoTec recently conducted a pilot in the UK on grapes with Marks & Spencer, the world-leading retailer in sustainability. Due to the longer shelf life and resulting increase in product quality, M&S experienced double digit sales growth. And waste was reduced by 50%. This resulted in a large saving. [update: in 2013 Perfotec repeated this pilot with M&S with Spanish strawberries and raspberries, resulting in a reduction of waste of 33% for strawberries and an unbelievable 91% for raspberries!]
In 2012, Manor Fresh won the M&S Food Supplier’s Innovation for an M&S unique PerfoTec packaging system, which has greatly improved the retail shelf life performance of quality M&S Fresh potatoes supplied by Manor Fresh Ltd. With this, Manor Fresh has moved away from a one-size fits all approach to fresh produce pack atmosphere (from potatopro.com)
