ECOPALLETS: Scaling new heights

EcoPallets has made significant progress in the Kenyan market since joining the Group in December 2014. The company has acquired many new clients in the fresh produce export sector that are doing full-scale tests with their pallets, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive!  On average, EcoPallets saves their clients Ksh1000/- per pallet shipped, and when you multiply those savings over monthly volumes, the financial benefits are quite dramatic.

EcoPallets CEO Jacob Schmalzle explained how they have achieved such success this far;
“Our pallets were recently recognized as the only pallets worldwide to be a USDA Certified 100% Biobase Product.  In a global market that is increasingly concerned with the environment, this certification provides our clients with a valuable eco-marketing platform and makes exporters from East Africa that much more competitive around the world.

We are working on several new pallet designs that further reduce weight without any compromise.  We look forward to our continued growth and success as we expand our client base and product line!”
