Atmosphere Control Solutions for Your Packaging Needs

About Us

For over 20 years, Windham Packaging LLC has provided experienced professional help to numerous companies in the fresh produce industry.  We were designing packaging films for the fresh produce industry before breathable films were recognized as a necessity.  Our strengths come from in-depth knowledge of the factors affecting produce quality, including fresh-cut processing and its effects on quality. We couple that knowledge with our expertise in identifying packaging film requirements and manufacturing those films for our customers' unique product characteristics.

We provide extensive technical assistance to our customers.  Our hands-on approach to problem-solving is based on actual industry practices.  So when we assist you with package selection, you know that all aspects of produce processing, storage, and distribution have been considered.
