Posted: 4/1/2014

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – April 1, 2014  – Rehrig Pacific Company, experts in reusable packaging that moves and merchandises customers’ brands for food, beverage and CPG companies, today announced that it has been named as the winner of the 2014 Grocery Headquarters Achievement Award. The award is given out as part of the Grocery Headquarters magazine’s inaugural Produce Trailblazer Award program. The Trailblazer Awards recognize innovation within the produce categories and were created to salute organizations that have had the most impact in the industry this year. The Achievement Award recognizes Rehrig Pacific’s contribution to growing the produce industry and the impact the company has had on the marketplace.
“Rehrig is honored to be a part of Grocery Headquarters’ Trailblazer Award program. It wasn’t one facet of our produce supply chain solutions that differentiated us from the other suppliers, but the collective ensemble. To our customers, our value is our vision to be an innovator in the industry by offering comprehensive product and service offerings that move and merchandise the world’s best brands in the grocery retail supply chain,” said Trent Overholt, vice president of Rehrig Pacific Company.  “At Rehrig, we believe in challenging the status quo in pursuit of finding cost-effective ways to enhance the consumer experience, and our offering for the fresh produce industry is a great example of what we believe.”
Rehrig Pacific offers durable, efficiently designed, reusable plastic packaging that protects products all the way from the field to the produce aisle. The cost savings Rehrig containers offer are real and significant.  Produce chills faster in well ventilated plastic containers and more produce arrives stem-perfect cradled in smooth contoured interiors that won’t absorb moisture, harmful bacteria or pathogens.
Rehrig produces a full range of reusable produce containers (RPCs) and retail-ready packaging (RRPs) that securely stack and ship, efficiently nest, and prominently merchandise fresh produce and the grower’s brand. These containers are proven to withstand the rigors of field packing, transport, storage and delivery whether shipping across the farm or across the country.  Strong, yet lightweight, growers get more produce per shipment and better utilize existing storage space by confidently stacking up to three pallets high in most cases. Empty containers can be stored outside and take up a fraction of the storage space. 
Trailblazer and Achievement Award winners will be featured in a special editorial section of the April 2014 print issue of Grocery Headquarters and on For more information about Rehrig Pacific Company and its full line of products and services visit: or call (800) 421-6244.
