Asia Pacific’s equipment pooling solutions experts, Loscam, have won the ‘Best Innovation Food & Beverage Service Provider Award’ presented at IMPACT CHINA: Food and Beverage Global Summit 2014, which was held recently in Beijing, China.
Loscam presented “Farm to Store Logistics” to over 300 senior delegates at the summit. David Edwards, General Manager, Marketing and Development of China Merchants Loscam, explained how returnable packaging can address the serious food wastage rate found in traditional fresh produce supply chains – estimated at about 25%. A number of case studies presented showing how the standardization of transit platforms such as pallets and produce crates can lead to improved produce protection, cost reduction, efficiency improvement and in-store display enhancement.
“Greater China is making a big shift to enhance food protection in the supply chain and Loscam is working closely with the industry to develop sustainable, returnable packaging solutions that improve food safety and lower supply chain costs,” said Edwards.
