Wish Farms Blueberry SmartSeal® Traceable Package with Variable Data Lidding Film
As a year-round supplier of fresh berries, Wish Farms harvests products throughout North and South America at peak growing seasons. The products are packed in the U.S. and distributed throughout North America. To meet packaging requirements and federal exporting regulations, Wish Farms selected Sonoco’s SmartSeal® Fresh lidding with Sonoco Unique Variable Data. This variable data printing allows Wish Farms to track and trace each tray individually with a unique scannable QR code. This technology solution combines with peel/reseal lidding to deliver enhanced consumer experience, re-closeable, tamper evidence, and package sustainability. SmartSeal® Fresh lidding replaces the rigid clamshell top reducing plastic usage and light-weighting the package by at least 30% compared with the previous clamshell. These features earned Sonoco a silver award for sustainability. Learn more about the manufacturer here.
