CHEP worked closely with Wholesum to review their shipping and handling practices

CHEP worked closely with Wholesum to review their shipping and handling practices to identify efficiency and sustainability opportunities across their supply chain.

“Our partnership with CHEP is more than just an efficient way to move and store produce- it’s a way to embed our values of environmental stewardship and social responsibility into more facets of our operation.”

Hannah La Luzerne
Sustainability Manager
– Wholesum Harvest

Wholesum Harvest, one of North America’s fastest growing providers of organic fruits and vegetables, was founded on a commitment to “take care of the planet, the land, their workers and their customers”. This family owned and operated business has been using biological-control and natural growing practices for three generations. As a result, they have developed a reputation as a leader in sustainable farming. CHEP worked closely with Wholesum to review their shipping and handling practices to identify efficiency and sustainability opportunities across their supply chain. The environmental benefits of the transition to CHEP were quantified with a life cycle analysis which forecast the solid waste reduction resulting from this solution. As a result, Wholesum Harvest immediately transitioned to our shared and reusable pallets for handling, warehousing and transporting their produce as well as taking up the first carbon neutral pallet offering in
the US.
