“While others focus on carrying produce, we focus on selling it.”

When Package Containers was founded in Portland, Oregon, in 1947, we dedicated ourselves to helping our agricultural customers sell more produce with a comprehensive line of wire ties and bags for roadside sales. More than six decades later, PCI remains the leading provider of these products to grocers, growers and food service customers throughout North America. We are known for our ability to differentiate produce brands and increase sales through enhanced point of sale merchandising.

PCI has remained on top of current retail trends and the evolving needs of shoppers. It means constantly exploring new ways to increase the performance of our paper, wire tie and poly products. It means performing beyond expectations in the way we market and sell our products, manufacture them, support our customers and meet our environmental responsibilities.

Whatever your need, whether getting product to market faster and protecting it from damage along the way, helping attract more loyal, less price-sensitive customers to your store or building your brand, PCI’s underlying promise is the same: to help you sell more product and earn more revenue.

We Make It Happen

PCI is a team of experienced leaders who, together with our innovative clients, have revolutionized the way produce is merchandised and sold.
