Fox Packaging and Solutions Details Onion Packaging Offerings; Aaron Fox Comments
McALLEN, TX - As the Vidalia® onion season kicks into gear, suppliers will need packaging partners in their corner. Fox Packaging and Solutions offers a range of options for onion brands and packers, and I spoke with Aaron Fox, Executive Vice President, to learn a bit more.
“Our Fox Fresh Mesh Wicketed Bag is our recommendation for automated packaging. This structured packaging sits upright, showcasing the brand’s messaging on a belly band that can be on either one side or both sides of the bag,” he explained to me. “Our Fox Fresh Mesh bag has an ideal aesthetic for a clean packaging presentation that can be packed by hand or with the help of a carousel bagger, and our Fox Leno bag can support onions from 5 lbs to oversized 50 lb bags.”
Through the company’s partnership with INTEC, Fox Solutions offers equipment solutions that can pack 25 lb Leno bags and greater with a bagger that pairs with a palletizer and wrapper.
“Ultimately, packaging needs to do what is best for the product,” Aaron noted. “Onions need to be exposed to oxygen for effective husking, which is a natural product preservation. Our signature mesh allows nature to take course, allowing our packaging designs to suit the brand’s needs by means of presentation and lifecycle extension.”
With 60 years in the business, Fox Packaging has the know-how to ensure your product is treated with the utmost care.
“We’ve learned from both successes and trials. For brands looking to expand their program, Fox Packaging is glad to be a primary or secondary packaging partner,” Aaron shared. “For brands that are just launching their program, we’d be glad to send you samples and share our experience. We’re doing what’s best for our products, we are in a critical spot in our supply chain, we understand the impact of our decisions, and how we can make greater contributions to both retail and brand owner’s goals.”
A quadruple threat, one might say.
