Wolfgang Orgeldinger, the chief executive of reusable packaging group Ifco, has announced that the company will celebrate the 25th anniversary of its founding in 2017.
The anniversary will be celebrated throughout the year with a series of customer events and a donation of €25,000 to food banks across Europe and North America.
“This is an important milestone in Ifco's history,” said Orgeldinger. “Our company story is synonymous with the successful history of shared and reusable fresh food packaging.
"Ifoc started as an idea in 1992 and has grown into a global company operating a pool of more than 270m reusable plastic containers for packaging, transporting, storing and displaying fresh food," he added. "Our success is attributable to the compelling benefits of RPCs, the talented individuals who work here and the vision of our customers, who were quick to recognise the economic and environmental benefits of Ifco's business model.”
