ipdefor_plInternational Paper (IP) introduces a new packaging solution for tree fruit, which helps growers protect valuable produce. The company’s DEFOR® PL (Partially Lidded) box has been successfully used in the grape market and is now available for the tree fruit market. The new PL box offers the strength of the original DEFOR box design and incorporates attached top flaps.

The DEFOR packaging system is uniquely designed to satisfy grower, distributor and retailer needs, delivering product that looks as good in the store as it did when it was picked. The DEFOR system offers optimum product protection and excellent retail appeal in display-ready trays.

Produce packers can benefit from the DEFOR PL box’s structure, because the box is manufactured as one piece. This makes assembly and storage much easier for grape growers who use three-piece bliss boxes. Tree fruit and grape growers can even customize this solution into a fully-lidded box to provide additional protection for their produce.
