Alcan Packaging: CPET containers
CPET containers from Alcan Packaging Food Americas are 100% recyclable and provide an alternative to polypropylene (PP) trays.
Alcan’s CPET products contain an average of 17% post-consumer recycled material, using an FDA-certified clean recycling stream that complies with regulations for food contact. The CPET containers deliver seven times the barrier protection of multi-layer PP trays, as well as quality dimensional stability. CPET features dual ovenability and a temperature tolerance from -40F degrees to 400F degrees. CPET also eliminates negative affects on food flavor and aroma. A full spectrum of CPET trays, with a wide variety of colors and shapes are available.
