Material from the past with a sustainable soul
Everything starts with the poplar, which is highly used in Italy's national wood industry. While poplars have always been cultivated for economic purposes, for several years now, it has also been recognised that it has significant environmental purposes, namely absorbing atmospheric carbon, purifying water in intensively farmed areas, and protecting the landscape and agricultural ecosystems.
Natural wood for environmentally compatible packaging
Nature transporting nature. This is what makes wooden packaging for fruit and vegetables the most sustainable and environmentally friendly packaging to date.
Berardi Imballaggi is one of a few companies with enough surface area to house the raw material directly in the sawmill. These are poplar trunks that will be transformed into environmentally compatible, safe, and certified wooden crates. Their majesty brings us face to face every day with the grandeur of nature, for which we have great respect and gratitude.
We have never used chemical and/or artificial processes when producing our wooden packaging, and we do not use additives or mixtures. We use wood in its most natural expression. In fact, it is shaped after being cut, without resorting to thermal treatments.
Various studies show the chemical and microbiological safety of wood surfaces when they contact fresh products (fruit, vegetables, fish, dairy products, etc.). Its porous surface ensures a greater antimicrobial effect and does not alter the organoleptic qualities of the foods, preserving their characteristics.
At Berardi Imballaggi, wooden crates for the fruit and vegetable industry are created entirely naturally, using the raw material, and protecting customers and the environment.
100% biodegradable wooden packaging
Maximum hygiene and sanitary safety
Our wooden packaging respects all requirements regarding hygiene and suitability for contact with food.
The FSC certification of our wooden packaging guarantees the use of wood from responsibly managed cultivation forests where a new tree is planted for each one that is cut down.
Berardi Imballaggi is associated with the Rilegno Consortium. All our wooden packaging is recycled to generate new packaging and give this precious raw material new life.
