Packaging

Monte Packaging has been part of the Benton Harbor Fruit Market since almost the beginning. At one time, Monte Packaging was one of 10-12 packaging companies serving the local area. Over the years, Monte continually adapted to the ever changing needs of their grower partners, as well as keeping a close watch on the demands from the end users of the produce. When corrugated  packaging started to come into existence, Monte was one of the first companies to adapt to using corrugated instead of wood packaging.  High volume chain stores preferred corrugated as it was easier to dispose of. Growers liked corrugated as it took up significantly less space than wood.

The transition into corrugated was a huge part of Monte’s success. At the Benton Harbor Fruit Market, Monte has an over 20,000 square foot facility to serve the local growers. The company goes by the name, “Midwest Packaging”, which is part of Monte Packaging. To speak with Monte Packaging directly, call 269-927-3371.
