For the optimal display of fruit and vegetables

The Cabka eye-catcher is a modular add-on system for the display of fruit and vegetables in reusable and non-reusable packaging.

Properties and advantages

  • Increased commodity pressure through automatic lifting up of the goods
  • Overstacking or goods spillage is avoided
  • Nicer presentation on the shelves
  • Better presentation and sale of the goods
  • Protects goods and reduces write-offs
  • Cheap underlay to level out packaging of varying heights
  • Cheap alternative to foldable crates in order to prevent slippage on tilted shelves

Optimal goods display

The goal is to improve the display of fruit and vegetables on the shelves and thus increase commodity pressure. This is often achieved through multilayered stacking which damages the underlying goods, disturbs the arrangement of the products in the original packaging and seriously affects goods presentation. Inlays are also placed at the bottom of the packaging to lift up the goods, the necessary packing and unpacking however damages the goods and requires a high labour input.

The eye-catcher lifts the goods out of the packaging without prior packing and unpacking. Overstacking single-layered goods becomes redundant as the packaging appears fuller. Multilayered goods still appear numerous despite the small number of layers. Goods protection is increased and write-offs are reduced. 

The eye-catcher can be used with disposable and reusable packaging. In most trade chains fruit and vegetables are usually displayed in transport containers made of plastic, cardboard or wood. The variations in height of the containers are often levelled out with empty, folded plastic containers. This inappropriate usage of the transport containers leads to a high capital employed. The basic version of the eye-catcher is able to solve this problem with considerably lower capital costs.

A display with a system

The key feature of the Eye-Catcher system are lifting pins which are inserted into the base frame. With the help of a load-bearing insert, they push through the floor of the packaging and lift the products upwards.

The packaging must be equipped with a product-bearing insert and eight corresponding holes at the bottom.

The full packaging can be placed on the Eye-Catcher.

The Eye-Catcher lifts the products into the desired position.

The supplier can already place the insert — as a printed cardboard version, for example — before filling the packaging. Alternatively, a plastic version can be placed underneath the goods in the store, with no need to unpack them beforehand. This is especially easy with flat packaging!
