Kenya Avocado Excellence Awards

Silafrica’s fruit and vegetable export crates win Packaging Innovation of the Year

Silafrica, the leading manufacturer of FMCG packaging solutions in East Africa, is proud to announce that its foldable export crates for fruit and vegetables, a game-changing solution in the sector, were recently awarded the Packaging Innovation of the Year at the Kenya Avocado Excellence Awards (KAEA).

The KAEA is a prestigious initiative of the Avocado Society of Kenya, aimed at advancing the service delivery and overall development of the avocado industry, recognizing and appreciating exceptional contributions by industry players, encouraging innovation and strict adherence to best practices and regulatory standards, and stimulating healthy competition.

Silafrica was honored to have had its CEO, Mr. Ravi Muthu, receive the award from the Permanent Secretary of the State Department of Crop Development, Harsama Kello, one of the leading authorities in agriculture.

So what makes Silafrica’s foldable export crates so innovative and such a game changer? First and foremost, they are lightweight, which is crucial when it comes to shipping costs, as the weight of the fruits and vegetables is the main factor determining cost. These crates are also foldable and occupy approximately 90% less space when not in use, making return journeys and continuous reuse much more feasible.

However, affordability is one of the key factors, as the crates are priced the same as packaging cartons, which are far less durable. And thanks to their design, they are able to protect the contents and keep them fresh for longer, resulting in higher conversion rates and sale revenues.

In addition to their practicality and cost-effectiveness, these crates are also recyclable, making them a valuable addition to the global circular economy. At the end of their life cycle, they can be recycled into other valuable plastic products.

Silafrica is proud to have been recognized for its innovative packaging solutions and is committed to continuing to offer top-quality products that meet the needs of its clients and the demands of the market. The company is confident that its foldable export crates will become the go-to choice for crop exporters looking to streamline their operations, reduce costs, and increase profits.
