“We have a strong commitment to family farming and organic standards. We stand firmly against genetically modified foods ... but the organic label is not enough for us." - Brian Shilhavy, Founder, Tropical Traditions

Every so often you come across a company that truly understands the importance of quality, purity and preservation. Tropical Traditions, an organic foods company headquartered in Wisconsin, is just that type of company.
Since the year 2002, Tropical Traditions has been providing healthy solutions to their loyal customer base. “We have a strong commitment to family farming and organic standards. We stand firmly against genetically modified foods (No GMOs). But the organic label is not enough for us,” Brian Shilhavy, founder, proudly shares.
The actions the company has recently taken show that Tropical Traditions’ commitment to the environment is just as strong as their commitment to organic standards. The company was not happy only offering a polystyrene shipping container for their quality meats and dairy. They began searching for a solution and eventually came across Landaal Packaging Systems and their “Green Cell Foam” thermal shippers.
“We, at Tropical Traditions, are very pleased we found Landaal Packaging Systems. We were searching for an option to replace the common polystyrene coolers for a temperature-controlled package for our refrigerated products. Landaal was able to provide us with an excellent replacement; a packaging foam product that is biodegradable, and compostable,” says Jon Leever, Director of Business Development for Tropical Traditions. “The thermal protection is comparable to polystyrene packaging. Our customers have been very pleased with this environmentally-friendly packaging.”
Jon adds, “We make every effort to contribute to maintaining a clean environment by choosing to avoid polystyrene and using biodegradable packaging to serve our customers.”
“Tropical Traditions is one of many clients who are making the transition into a more sustainable packaging option,” states Terry Choate, Sales and Operations Planning Manager at Landaal Packaging Systems.
“As consumers have become more educated on biodegradable and compostable packaging products that limit waste, our business has grown,” shares Terry. “Green Cell has been around for over 10 years now and the product’s performance track record is helping fuel the increase in demand.”
Landaal Packaging Systems is a family owned packaging company based in Burton, Michigan. The company has partnered with KTM industries, the manufacturer of Green Cell Foam to offer sustainable cold chain shippers since 2009. To learn more contact:
