As the world changes and evolves, so much the ways in which we package our food.
We are all too aware of the damage being done to our planet by non-sustainable food packaging, like plastic and aluminium, which is why we are delighted to announce our brand-new range of fully compostable meal trays. Made from sustainable paper pulp and lined with cellulose, these trays offer the perfect solution for meal manufacturers, fresh food producers and meal delivery services. And what’s more, we can even provide a home compostable, cellulose sealing film, creating one of the most environmentally friendly food packaging solutions on the market.
These new trays, and the cellulose film, are safe for use in ovens, microwaves, and freezers, giving a fully flexible, eco-conscious, food packaging solution.
Our new fully compostable range of trays come in a wide variety of sizes:
Meal Trays – one, two or three compartments
Multi-Portion / Gastro Trays – 1/8, ¼, 1/3 and ½ gastro available in multiple depths
Fresh Produce Meal Trays – Ideal for packing fresh vegetables, fruit or meat and can either be heat-sealed or cling-wrapped
The Benefits of our Meal Packaging System
Our compostable trays are safe for use in the oven up to 180°C and stay cool to the touch, even when the food inside is piping hot, reducing the risk of injury whilst cooking. Our trays also maintain their shape when heated, unlike so many plastic trays.
The trays are suitable for frozen storage down to -40°C and will maintain their rigidity even at this temperature; they will not shatter if dropped when frozen, unlike many plastic trays. They can go from the freezer to the oven or microwave without altering the performance of the tray.
Our trays are perfect for use in the microwave. As in a conventional over, the outer surface of the tray is not heated and there is no loss in rigidity.
