Orchard Bin

 

Bring the Orchard into Your Produce Department

AWP’s most popular solution to merchandising produce is our Orchard Bins™ which offer a “fresh from the farm” look that increases sales, reduces labor costs, and lasts for years.

 

The Challenge
Several years ago, a client came to us with a real concern. The wooden crate bins that they had been using to displayed produce were being replaced far too frequently, at significant cost and causing unwarranted disruption in the store. They were difficult to clean and looked chipped and worn. They wanted a solution.

 

The Solution
AWP business development and design staff pride themselves for putting their innovation on display. When our client asked us for a more durable solution that would decrease labor costs, we went to work. Our expertise extends to a full range of materials, including metal and plastic. An attractive wood-grain paneling was the obvious solution. It ensures that the bins are incredibly durable and that they are easy to keep clean. Bins we installed over 12 years ago are still in service and look as good as new. Not satisfied, the team went one step further to minimize in-store disruption. We designed a patented knock-down cleat system that allowed for easy assembly with virtually no tools. The Orchard Bin is a cost-effective, durable, easy-to-assemble solution to improve the look of your produce department while reducing labor and shipping costs – and it lasts for years!

 

The Business Case
Over a 12 year period we have installed over 500,000 Orchard Bin™ panels and in that time have only ever replaced one! Other benefits include:

Cleanliness: The durable outer shell is easy to clean, improving sanitation and reducing labor costs.

Ease of Assembly:  Two employees can assemble an 80 bin store in just two hours, using minimal tools.

Flexibility: We build to your specifications, using 3 x 3 modular panels. A full line of accessories such as risers, bag holders, and bins will allow you to customize different bins in your department.

Storage: The optional hinged door design allows for quick storage of cleaning supplies, bags, etc.

Reduced Shipping Costs: The patented cleat design allows us to knock down the panels, which has been shown to reduce shipping costs by over 200%.
