The trays allow light-weighting, #1 recyclability, optional PCR and up to 15% source reduction. The trays feature toughness at low temperatures and dimensional stability at high temperatures so they go easily from freezer to microwave or oven to table. Designed for frozen, refrigerated and shelf-stable meals, side dishes and desserts plus case-ready and processed meats, cheese trays and fresh bakery. The trays are impact-modified to prevent breakage at low temperatures, and are FDA-approved for high-temperature use and bake-in applications. Feature inherent oxygen barrier to protect freshness and flavor. Trays can be paired with rigid or flexible lidding for a complete package solution. CPET facilities are AIB-certified and the trays are Kosher-approved by the Orthodox Union.
