Grimmway Farms Drives Continuous Innovation with Specright

500 500 Packaging Spec System

Grimmway FarmsStarting as a simple produce stand in 1968, Grimmway Farms has grown into an agriculture powerhouse. The largest grower, producer and shipper of carrots in the world, Grimmway Farms has now expanded into other markets such as potatoes and various organic crops. Grimmway Farms is committed to offering unsurpassed quality, innovative products and packaging and extensive sustainability practices.

Under the “Grimmway Farms” brand are many other brand names, including: Bunny-Luv, Cal-Organic, King Pak and TRUE Organic Juice. With each new addition to a product line comes a new logo and brand image, making managing packaging production chaotic and cumbersome. Between flexible packages for carrots and potatoes, recyclable plastic bottles for organic juices, and corrugated shippers for all products, there are many packaging specifications that need to remain updated.
