Benefits of plastic pallets in the food and beverage industry

Hygiene in food and beverage transportation

Working in the food and beverage industry, your shipping materials need to be impervious to the conditions that can contaminate your supply. Plastic eliminates places for bacteria like Salmonella, E. coli and Listeria to hide, nor is it a suitable place for insects to hide or lay eggs. As the material gets wet or ages, you don't have to worry about it weakening.

Hygienic features of food grade plastic pallets:

  • Can be stored below zero degrees
  • Flat top pallets for easy cleaning
  • No need for fumigation
  • Resistant to moisture, weak acids and alkalis
  • Resistant to mould or dust contamination

Export ready for trading

Plastic pallets are ready to ship all around the whole world into the many markets that Australia serves. They meet the AQIS requirements for export to Australia and New Zealand - and it's important to note that other countries like China, are considering restricting importation of goods on wooden pallets.

Additionally, plastic pallets make for easy exporting, as they are stackable and nestable, and don't have nails or splinters, making them easier for handling. The lightweight material (20-30 kilograms less than other pallets) makes the pallets easy for lifting and moving.
