Vertical farming is on the rise in big cities across the globe and new growers and distributors are hustling to get into the market. In fact, by 2023, the vertical farming market is expected to reach 6.4 billion U.S. dollars around the world. One company is poised to back this trend’s growth. 

“More produce means more packaging—and that’s where we come in,” says Michael Esposito, Vice President of Orange Packaging, a fully integrated manufacturing facility in Newburgh, New York. With 150,000 square feet of manufacturing space and 10 production lines, the team at Orange Packaging is ready to assist vertical farmers with their packaging needs at a moment’s notice. 

I’m so encouraged by the growth of vertical farming across our area,” says Esposito. “The fact that it allows farmers to produce more food using less resources makes it a win in my book. It sounds like a viable, long-term solution and we’d like to help it succeed.”

Orange Packaging’s facility is filled with a diverse array of tools and equipment to meet any packaging need. Their Thermoforming tools have created packaging for every type of grower—from the top produce companies sold at big box retailers to the smaller, local farms you’d find at a local grocery store or farmer’s market.

Orange Packaging also offers a variety of Thermoformed packaging materials like small herb clamshells, bulk lettuce containers, tubs and bins in several different materials like food-grade APET and rPET as well as corn-based PLA. 

“Partnering with hard-working business owners is what we do best—and that includes local farmers and growers,” says Esposito. “Let us help you get your product to market. Whether that’s the farmer’s market or the supermarket—we’re here for you!”

Packaging isn’t the company’s only forte. The company also specializes in designing and engineering POP displays and custom molds. The team can even handle fulfillment and has the ability to drop ship anywhere in the world. Their expansive facility allows them to run high-volume orders quickly. They keep stock items on hand that can be purchased immediately, while custom orders can be produced in as little as 3-4 weeks.
