Eric Biddiscombe joins Polymer Logistics Canada

There’s a new face in the business of reusable transport and merchandising systems.


Eric Biddiscombe, a long-time leader with Loblaw Companies and most recently of Chill Fresh Produce, has now joined Polymer Logistics as country manager for Canada. Polymer Logistics is a multi-national company in the business of retail display products and logistics.


Eric has a broad background of retail experience, serving in leadership roles in supply chain, produce procurement, quality assurance, merchandising, process improvement, and corporate social responsibility. Additionally, he is an experienced advocate for the fruit and vegetable industry, having served on the Canadian Produce Marketing Association board of directors for nine years.


In his new role, Biddiscombe will oversee all aspects of the company’s business development in Canada, including retailer and grower development, service, operations and asset management for the full range of the company’s reusable packaging and merchandising systems.


Polymer Logistics operates in much of the same value chain and retail space as IFCO, as suppliers of reusable plastic containers (RPCs) for produce, meat and eggs.
