Pandobac - A zero-waste service of reusable crates designed for food wholesalers and producers for fresh products delivery

Currently, foodstuffs are packaged in disposable packaging, such as cardboard, wooden and plastic crates or polystyrene crates. Retailers waste time dealing with packaging waste, have little storage space and end up throwing everything away. Pandobac offers the opportunity to switch from single-use packaging to reusable for B2B food delivery. It is a turnkey solution including reusable crate rental and additional services to ensure reuse. The solution is built around 3 pillars: the rental of reusable crates that comply with food standards, a hygienic washing service and a web and mobile tracking application. For the whole service, Pandobac charges producers and/or wholesalers a monthly fee. The crates are specially designed for food contact and are made of 100% recyclable plastic. They are light, ergonomic and easy to handle. The crates can be nested and stacked together, saving storage space.
