Sambrailo Packaging introduces ReadyCycle
WATSONVILLE — Sambrailo Packaging introduced a new line of packaging called ReadyCycle.

Manufactured with sustainable materials and food-grade adhesives, and printed with water-soluble inks, ReadyCycle is 100 percent recyclable.

“We’ve created game-changers in the past, including the introduction of the plastic clamshell in 1987,” said Juana Ramirez, director of sales and marketing for Sambrailo. “As consumers push growers and retailers to be more environmentally aware, we decided that we needed to develop a solution that would achieve the same, or better, packaging functionality without the carbon footprint, and one that could provide marketing opportunities without the use of an additional label.”

ReadyCycle is a paper-based packaging solution that can be pre-printed inside and out. Pack sizes and weights can be adjusted and tailored to the needs of each grower or retailer.

Sambrailo Packaging will be featuring ReadyCycle at the West Coast Produce Expo in Palm Springs May 19-21, Booth #419. For information about ReadyCycle, visit
