DS Smith has developed a fully recyclable sustainable solution for sushi brand EAT HAPPY to replace its disposable plastic sushi trays.

Designed to be water and grease-repellent, the new trays protect and preserve the product within.

The tray and its lid are made from natural and renewable raw materials using corrugated cardboard.

Smith said that the project used its Circular Design Metrics approach, meaning the trays are expected to save more than 1,250 tonnes of plastic annually.

In a press statement, Smith said: “Using Circular Design Metrics, we evaluate and tailor a unique solution against a formula of eight set criteria inclusive of recyclability, renewable materials, and supply chain optimisation.”

The new sushi trays are planned to be made available in a wide range of shapes and sizes to appeal to consumers.
