How to Create the Perfect Produce Boxes for Your Business

Input the exact interior dimensions for your produce deliveries.

Not sure how to get the correct measurements for your shipping boxes? Here’s how to determine the correct interior length, width, and depth so your bulk deliveries are preserved in transit. Be sure to measure from inside the box, as these dimensions can fit all items.

  • Length: measure the package’s longest side horizontally.
  • Width: measure the shorter side of the package horizontally.
  • Depth: take this from the box’s vertical side, starting from the base until the top.

Select a color that is in line with your branding and planned packaging design.

Choose from four colors for your corrugated produce boxes to match the brand image, design, and budget you have in mind:

  • Standard white offers a smooth and bright finish without having to spend extra on a luxurious-looking package. Perfect for designs shipped in bulk quantities and across different locations.
  • Premium white has a little more luster and shine that suits bold color combinations. Recommended for produce brands serving a higher-end market.
  • Premium white with glossy ink highlights a specific element on your produce packaging, such as the company name or logo. Customers will instantly see your name or logo in one glance.
  • Kraft (brown) has a rustic texture that steals attention with its simplicity and understated elegance. It provides a suitable background for straightforward or earthy designs that reflect your product's quality.

Eco-Friendly Packaging for Fresh Produce

If you're looking for eco-friendly and sustainable options for your produce, then Kraft boxes are an excellent solution. These are low-impact and made of 60-100% recyclable materials. The natural color of these boxes don’t require printing or processing, so they’re more affordable than other box options. Kraft boxes are also safe enough to store consumable goods and can be reused as an alternative means of storage, which lowers the trash contribution to landfills. Shifting to sustainable packaging not only helps the environment, but it also saves you money and leaves an impression that your business is mindful of its environmental impact.
