Cereals 2009: Slug pellet packaging gets a makeover

Crop protection maker Certis has launched a new generation of slug pellet packaging at Cereals 2009.

The firm says it will prevent spillages and help the industry Get Pelletwise campaign to stop metaldehyde slug pellets entering watercourses.

The new gusset-free plastic pillow packs replace the traditional paper sacks and will be used on all the Certis slug pellet range, including the new ferric phosphate product Sluxx, as well as their range of metaldehyde products including Trigger and Red 3.

“It’s an important change and one the industry demanded,” said marketing and business development manager Robert Lidstone. “The new packs are a simple way we as manufacturers can help both the supply chain and end users get pelletwise,” he said.
