NATURIPE: Blueberry packs got an overhaul at Naturipe Farms. Berry Quick Snacks have a fresh new look, says Brian Jenny (left), senior director and general manager of ready-to-eat. Jenny says the new design should start hitting the market in June. Kyla Garnett, says the company has a new heat seal lid for larger berry clamshells, the 2-pound and 18-ounce packs, that reduces the amount of plastic used by 50%. For organic blueberries, Naturipe plans to offer a palm fiber tray with a flow wrap option starting later this summer, she says. By Pamela Riemenschneider
