Readyripe Watermelon Pouch Wins Best New Packaging Award

The Maglio Team is proud to announce that another innovation has been acknowledged by their peers. The Readyripe Watermelon Pouch won the Best New Packaging Award at the 2015 United Fresh foodservice convention. 45 fresh fruit and vegetable innovations were on display for attendees to admire and vote for the best, but only five could be named as the top winners.

The Readyripe Watermelon Pouch can extend the shelf life of watermelon for up to 11 days versus the shelf life of conventional overwrap and trays. It holds 1/4" cut or 1/2” cut slices of watermelon.

“We’re very excited to have been honored with the United Fresh Innovation Award for Best New Packaging, as this gives us the opportunity to increase exposure of Maglio Companies products through innovative design,” said Joe Delgadillo, Product Innovation Manager at Maglio Companies. (Shown accepting the award.) “We hope to continue to drive innovation in the category of fresh produce by providing new ways for consumers to enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables with a longer shelf life.”
