SHEPPARTON, AUSTRALIA — An Australian firm will supply San Francisco's Del Monte Foods Co. with its plastic packaging technology.
SPC Ltd., a Shepparton maker and marketer of fruit and vegetable products, signed a deal to provide its proprietary technique to Del Monte. The plant will make clear-plastic rigid containers for fruit products. SPC would not give details about the technology.
``SPC's investment in new food-processing technology is beginning to pay off in our own operations, and we are pursuing international alliances that will further leverage our investment,'' said Peter Thor, SPC managing director.
