    CHEP Fresh Food Solutions

    CHEP provides “one touch” and bulk product handling solutions for fresh fruit and vegetables from the farm to the store.


  • Improving operational efficiency in the fresh food industry

    Customers and consumers want to be sure products are sourced from approved growers and farmers. Retailers want longer shelf life, and this often leaves only hours to move your product from production to retail.

    With the overly complex business of fresh food, meeting the rapidly changing supply and demand conditions means finding new ways to reach tight margins and operate with flexibility.

    Whether you are producing, processing or retailing fruit, vegetables, meat or poultry, meeting peak performance in the industry requires faster reaction times, and a continual focus on operational efficiency; where cost control, yield management and tracking are all critical to your success.

    We support growers, processers and retailers in creating greater operational efficiencies, moving fresh product from farm to store, or meat processors to move bulk meat.

    With our global experience of fresh food supply chains, we often see companies make packaging decisions at the point of production, without considering the impacts on product quality, temperature control, transport or handling efficiency down the supply chain.

    We help customers find packaging solutions for their entire supply chain, to help them reduce their packaging-driven costs. We do this via our cost mapping processes which allows customers to evaluate their packaging solutions more effectively, so they can consider if their current solution is right for them and their future strategy.
