Greif Investment Expands Capacity for Food Grade IBCs

Date: 2019-04-16

Greif has recently invested in another state-of-the-art blow molding machine to double its in house production capacity for IBCs at its facility in Ede, Netherlands.

The new blow molder machine operates with food safe hydraulic oil, active carbon filtered air and bacteria free cooling water, and will allow Greif to meet its growing demand for food grade IBCs. The machine is located in a cleanroom environment,

The investment adds to the existing machine installed last year, boosting the output capacity of Greif’s Ede facility over 1,500 per day.

“Demand for IBCs continues to grow in the food sector where product integrity and shelf life storage are becoming increasingly important” said Luca Bettoni, Greif EMEA IBC and plastic product manager. “This additional investment boosts our in-house capacity and offers customers the reassurance of product protection against contamination.”

“Furthermore, the Ede facility recently achieved the FSSC 22000 certification for food safety, clearly demonstrating our commitment to providing the best level of service and quality of product to our customers.”

FSSC 22000 is fully recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative.

Greif’s multi-million euro facility in Ede has been designed to offer customers the very latest IBC technologies available to the market, with a specific focus on the food industry offering the highest standards in the IBC market.
