- by Jordan Okumura
MCALLEN, TX - Fox Packaging is celebrating this year as the 50th anniversary of the company’s start in servicing fresh produce customers around the globe.
Growing from humble beginnings as a one-man company with used equipment and borrowed space, the work and vision of Founder and CEO, Kenneth Fox, has inspired Fox Packaging to innovate throughout the fresh produce industry. Actively involved in the day-to-day operations of the business, the company says Fox has remained committed to the core values on which he based his business for the past 5 decades.
“Our focus is on delivering timely and helpful solutions to our customers. Whether dealing with a familiar challenge or something new based on today’s consumer trends and supply chain needs, we will dive in and work with our customers to find the right solution for them,” Fox says.
Over the decades the company has earned several global patents in bag design, and today, Fox Packaging is still driven by Fox’s entrepreneurial spirit. Now a family business run by all three sons – Keith, Craig and Aaron – the company is focused on maintaining a culture of invention, according to a press release.
“More than ever, our team realizes just how quickly our industry evolves, and we are actively invested in many areas of product development that we believe will help ultimately increase our customers’ sales,” said Aaron Fox, Vice President.
The company says they are always looking forward to the next wave of change in produce packaging and how it can prepare its customers.
