Collapsible crate range earns top international award

KINROSS-based Exporta Global’s best-selling F-Crate range has won a prestigious WorldStar Packaging Award.

Exporta is the sole UK supplier of the collapsible crate range, which has reached 8000 sales.

The F-Crate won an award within the Transit category. Exporta said its design features include a “unique locking mechanism, a high nesting ratio, ergonomic grip handles and quick assembly/fold down time”.  

Dale Paterson, managing director at Exporta Global, said, “Since we launched to the UK market last year, the F-Crate range has become a stalwart and very popular choice in Exporta’s arsenal of quality products. We were very pleased to discover that the F-Crate range has received a WorldStar Award. We certainly feel it deserves this recognition and is credit where credit is due.

“The new year has seen the range’s sales surpass 8000, which is impressive for a product launched only a year ago.

“We believe the F-Crates’ commercial popularity is due to its excellent design and its versatility. It is suitable for use within the food industry as well as across traditional industrial, supply chain and logistics sectors.

“We predict that 2017 will be an equally successful year for the F-Crate, as it solidifies its position as a core Exporta offering.”
