Atlanta-based Tosca introduced a breakthrough in reusable plastic containers for packing, shipping and displaying individual cartons of eggs.
The new SmartWall is a retail-ready package that simplifies re-stocking and promises retailers less shrink from damaged goods, labor savings and less waste.
Additionally, eggs packed in the new Tosca containers are said to cool almost 10 times faster than eggs in corrugated cardboard, according to an April 2014 study conducted by Sensitech, a Beverly, Mass., provider of cold chain visibility solutions for tracking and monitoring temperature-sensitive products. The Sensitech study was conducted Cal-Maine’s Chase, Kans., facility. Cal-Maine is a producer and distributor of fresh shell eggs.
In addition to increased durability, benefits include better product protection resulting in less damage, innovative design with a simple, one-touch, drop-down front wall to reduce labor costs, efficient ventilation and faster cooling of packed eggs and a more sustainable package with less waste.
