2016 is a wrap with Mapflex, powered by Perfotec.

2016 has been an incredible year.

The global stage has been rocked by floods and the zika virus, wowed by the world’s 29th Olympic Games in Rio, enthralled by the first flower ever grown in outer space, and left speechless by one of the strangest election races ever run in US history – one with far-reaching implications.

Closer to home, we have had our shares of challenges and triumphs as well.

Mapflex achieved a milestone earlier this year when we upgraded our premises. Our new space is modern technology defined – a place of engineering and quality excellence. While the move brought its share of frustrations (as moves always do), we are proud of the growth that has brought us this far, and looking forward to a bright business future as we continue to grow and expand.

We have recently taken Mapflex’s Kenyan operation under our wing. Between us, Mapflex Africa now provides the broadest reach of modified atmosphere packaging products in Africa. Our international-standard products serve clients as diverse as farmers and producers, packers, and retailers.

To mark our continental reach, we have upgraded our website, as well. The new site can now be viewed here: http://mapflex.com/. We’ll be keeping the site updated with useful information, news, and relevant case studies throughout 2017, to help you get the best use of your packaging solution – and the longest life out of your fresh produce.

Anyone involved in the production, distribution, and sale of fresh fruit and vegetables knows the importance of an extended shelf life, a top-quality product that stays as fresh as possible, for as long as possible.

That is the Mapflex solution. And it’s one we’re looking forward to sharing with even more of Africa in 2017.

We wish you all a happy holiday, and a FRESH, prosperous new year.

Warm regards,
