LIVE FROM THE FIELDS: MFC ReadyCycle™ Strawberry

June 26, 2019

Please click here to view a Markon Live from the Fields video about our new, sustainable packaging for Markon First Crop (MFC) Strawberries.

  • Markon is committed to sustainability and reducing the use of plastic packaging in the supply chain wherever possible
  • After several months of development, we are proud to introduce MFC Strawberries in a 4/2-pound pack (Markon item code 92684) that features clamshells made of 100% recyclable cardboard
  • Our Quality Assurance team will work with our growers to make the transition from plastic to the cardboard clamshells
  • Limited supplies have been harvested to allow crews to acclimate to the new clamshells; orders will gradually increase over the next 7 to 10 days
