In 2017 IFCO will celebrate the 25th anniversary since its founding in 1992. The anniversary will be celebrated throughout 2017 with a series of customer events and a donation of 25,000 € to food banks across Europe and North America.

“IFCO started as an idea in 1992 and has grown into a global company operating a pool of more than 270 million reusable plastic containers for packaging, transporting, storing and displaying fresh food,” said IFCO CEO Wolfgang Orgeldinger.

Since joining the Brambles family of companies in 2011, IFCO has continued to expand into new geographies and new product categories while also growing its core businesses in fresh goods RPCs with the world’s leading retailers.

Today, more than 1.4 billion shipments of fresh goods – including produce, meat, eggs, bread, seafood, dairy and other items – arrive at grocery stores around the world in IFCO reusable plastic containers every year. IFCO customers are located in 50+ countries spanning six continents, with a pool of more than 270 million containers.

In September, IFCO announced it delivered fiscal year 2016 annual revenue of US $992 million, representing 16 percent growth over the prior year at existing currency.
