Irvington, NY—PECO Pallet, Inc has added Sobeys to its authorized distributors in Canada. Canadian and US manufacturers and produce companies can now ship their products into Sobeys supermarkets throughout Canada on PECO’s wood block pallets.

PECO Pallet rents its distinctive red pallets to leading grocery and consumer goods manufacturers, who use them to ship products throughout the US, Canada, and Mexico. Empty pallets are picked up and returned to a PECO depot, where they are inspected, cleaned, and repaired as needed before being reissued.

PECO recently became the first pallet company to be certified by the Safe Quality Food Institute (SQFI) for Level 2 HACCP-Based Food Safety Plans, demonstrating PECO’s commitment to quality, control, and consumer safety.
