Made of virgin polypropylene plastic, the 1012 and 1212 are long lasting and durable with smooth, soft surfaces to protect produce from bruising. Additionally, the bins are tapered, which prevents them from crashing against the walls of any adjacent bins, creating a “Bruise Buffer Zone”. The new column design works to protect the containers by absorbing and recoiling impact rather than resisting the blow and breaking. When stacked with their columns and feet locked into place, the bins no longer nest into each other. Instead, they are secured by our interlocking foot design, perfectly settling on top of each other so that contents remain unharmed. To better preserve produce, the Hybrid 1012 and 1212 have 10% more ventilation for increased airflow and faster cooling.
