ATLANTA, GA - Attention Walmart shoppers, you may soon notice a homier atmosphere when you visit the produce aisle.

As we previously reported, IFCO and Walmart, two companies that have partnered in produce since 2000, are teaming up to refurbish the retail giant’s produce aisle with IFCO’s new woodgrain patterned Reusable Plastic Containers (RPCs). This past weekend at PMA Fresh Summit in Atlanta, GA, Vice President of Produce for Walmart U.S., Dorn Wenninger, and Daniel Walsh, President of IFCO North America, sat down with us to tell us more about this next big step.

To see all that Daniel and Dorn had to say, watch the full video above.

“I’m excited to have this wood look RPC in all of my stores,” Dorn tells us, adding that Walmart has been trialling the new design for last several month. “With the entrance of IFCO, I look forward to fast tracking that rollout so that it can be across the stores everywhere in North America.”

Daniel conveyed his appreciation on behalf of IFCO to Walmart’s role, both as a partner and as a key driver of RPCs in the initial stages in North America.

“It looks like we’re headed into another phase of growth in partnership and I’m delighted to have the opportunity,” he added.
