Saudi Arabian dairy foods giant, Almarai, has selected OCTAL’s high-definition DPET/PE™ trays for packaging its poultry product line, Alyoum. Says OCTAL, its high-grade trays replace traditional polypropylene/polyethylene containers, providing Almarai a cost-effective100% recyclable product.

OCTAL’s DPET/PE sheet is suited to serve a growing market such as fresh poultry through its process efficiency that combines strength with flexibility and consistency to offer a superior-grade packaging solution, says the company.

“Until recently, meat and poultry processors widely used inefficient packaging. Today, OCTAL is leading the global conversion from traditional packaging materials to its cutting edge, environmentally efficient and mechanically advanced products,” says William J. Barenberg Jr. COO, OCTAL. “Partnering with large food and beverage producers such as Almarai demonstrates the reputation our products hold.”

OCTAL’s high-definition thermoforming can cater for a variety of shapes and sizes. The direct-to-sheet process is said to eliminate the most energy-consuming and defect-prone processes to deliver a flawless sheet. DPET/PE is currently being used in more than 52 countries with discussion currently underway to expand product supply to other major poultry brands. =
