On September 23rd, 2021, Goodpack celebrated the delivery of its 4 millionth container in global circulation to The Morning Star Packing Company (USA), the world’s largest tomato processor. “This container represents a concrete milestone for the continuous growth of the company, for our commitment to meet our customers’ requirements and our relentless promise to deliver,” said Goodpack CEO Eric Grégoire.
The four millionth returnable Goodpack container, an MB6 TOMATOCUBE™ by designation, was prepared for shipping by Goodpack’s operations in the USA and transported to the customer in September. The recipient, Morning Star’s tomato product packing facility in Williams, CA, was equally pleased to be at the receiving end of this special delivery. According to Aaron Giampietro, Morning Star: “The MB6 is more than an efficient, high-quality bulk aseptic tomato ingredient container by design and construction – along with the package comes an incredible company of professionals dedicated to timely and efficient logistical flow of materials. The Goodpack team has been instrumental in helping our customers adapt to changing market conditions and we look forward to unlocking new avenues and potential for this product.”
Goodpack’s Global Business Director for its FOOD vertical, Camburn Withers, said: “This celebrated returnable container signifies a lot to both Goodpack as a logistics service provider and to our customers, regardless of what vertical they represent. Firstly, having four million returnable metal containers in global circulation, with the approximately 5,000 delivery and collection points we maintain, is tangible proof that we can serve our customers on a global basis. Secondly, the model itself, the MB6 TOMATOCUBE, is a new design and specifically planned to meet the stringent handling and production requirements of the food and beverage industry. Thirdly, as with all Goodpack returnable container models, it emphasizes our commitment to minimize the impact of our activities on the environment. In short, it adds to the sustainable solutions we develop and offer. A keyword of our business, ‘returnable’, is definitely a significant factor in building the logistics ecosystems of a more sustainable future.”
