In the fresh produce industry, corrugated containers must be made to provide adequate protection throughout the product life cycle. In response to increasing materials costs in the corrugated industry, companies are focusing upon developing more efficient packaging designs. The scope of this project focuses on presenting alternative corrugated packaging designs for the fresh produce industry. Included are one piece designs, three piece bliss designs and alternative material exploration. This project presents the performance of new solutions by exploring their compressive strength before and after exposure to humidity.
