Bayer debuts agchem Smartline containers
Bayer CropScience has launched a line of packaging in Latin America that it rates as “more sustainable, safe and manageable” for its crop protection products. The company has reportedly recently introduced the products elsewhere. The Smartline packaging line will be employed for 250 ml to 5 litre containers. There are benefits such as more easily identifiable brands and transparent containers allowing users to check remaining contents, but particularly the production of the containers will “use up less energy and improve use of resources, with lower greenhouse gas emissions”. The standardisation of the containers will allow the products to be shared to all suppliers in Latin America, and the line will “migrate” to all countries in the region during 2012.
