Denmark-based Faerch Plast A/S, a food packaging company, has announced it plans to target Australia, New Zealand, the Middle East, the U.S., Canada, South Africa and Israel for future growth by building a network of overseas distributors.
Currently the expansion does not involve the company adding space or building any new facilities.
The company based in Holstebro, Denmark, states that the expansion plans are focused on its core range of crystalline PET containers for frozen and chilled convenience meals and its Mapet line of containers made from post-consumer recycled PET.
The Mapet line is used for fresh meat, poultry and fish packaging while the CPET containers can go from freezer to oven, capable of withstanding temperatures from -4° F to 430° F.
Joe Iannindardo, sales director for overseas markets at Færch Plast, said in a statement: “This international expansion is a key part of Faerch Plast's strategic growth plan. The company has established an excellent track record over the past 46 years and created an impressive customer base working with most of the leading food manufacturers, processors and packers in Europe.”
“We have an unrivalled reputation as a market leader in CPET containers for the European frozen and chilled convenience food industry and we are looking forward to establishing and working with a network of highly reputable distributors to replicate this success across the rest of the world.”
In 2014 Faerch Plast employed over 500 people across three factories based in Denmark, England and the Czech Republic and had sales offices in the United Kingdom and France.
