How a leading hydroponic farming operation extended product shelf life by 30% and cut plastic use by 35% through a turnkey packaging partnership.
More Freshness, Less Plastic
Vertical Roots, the largest hydroponic container-farming operation in the U.S., aimed to replace its traditional clamshell packaging with a smarter produce packaging solution—one that would extend shelf life, be more eco-friendly, reduce costs, improve efficiencies, and provide a superior customer experience. It was a tall order, but Belmark rose to the challenge with a turnkey packaging solution spanning package design, prototyping, and testing and partnerships with trusted third-party vendors.
Partnering with Belmark provided all of these solutions under one umbrella, saving Vertical Roots time and resources while letting it stay focused on what it does best—producing fresh, flavorful, sustainably grown produce.
“When we first met with the Belmark team, we knew we were meeting with a vendor who listened to their customer and put service and quality at the top of the list.”
