Leaders from across the globe gathered at the 12th world Tomato Congress in Santiago to discuss industry issues ranging from the impact of consumer behaviour to the macro-economic development in key markets, such as China. Interesting developments in technology such as the Internet of Things (IoT), drones, production and packaging technology were also deliberated.

During this event, Greif showed its global commitment to this industry, bringing executives from Greif Europe and Greif Latin America together to promote global business initiatives focused on serving customers and meeting their needs regarding conical drums & tailor made services. “As the conical drum solution optimizes freight, Greif is able to use its global production capacity and expertise to make sure we achieve excellence in terms of customer experience.” said Jorge Yanez, Greif General Manager of Chile & Argentina.

Commenting on their first sponsorship of this kind, Joaquim Duarte, General Manager Greif Iberia remarked, “As the leading provider of industrial packing solutions in this industry, Greif is committed to developing long-lasting relationships with our customers and with the industry as a whole.”

The Safe Choice

This business is very seasonal so processers need a packaging supplier who has the capability to deliver a high volume of drums during very short processing seasons in both hemispheres. “But relationships are about more than that – they are about trust”, adds Duarte. “Greif offers more than just production excellence and global presence. We have been the supplier of choice, leading processors in this industry for over thirty years. A high quality product combined with excellent customer service makes us The Safe Choice™.”
