Eco-Products introduces sustainable meat and produce trays

Foodservice packaging solutions provider Eco-Products has introduced a sustainable alternative to meat and produce trays.

Foodservice packaging solutions provider Eco-Products has introduced a sustainable alternative to meat and produce trays.

The new compostable offering is made from sugarcane and designed to package any food item that needs to be stored in the refrigerator or freezer. It can be used by grocery stores and food processors, which plan to use compostable packaging options.

The trays are resistant against grease and cuts, microwave-friendly and available in different sizes.

According to the company, these trays also meet ASTM guidelines for compostability.

Eco-Products marketing senior director Sarah Martinez said: “These compostable trays are ideal for supermarkets and food processors seeking environmentally preferable packaging.

“We’re excited to offer them because the demand for sustainable options continues to grow.”

The company has also rolled out a soak-proof version of the tray using plant-based plastic PLA.

Novolex brand Eco-Products specialises in delivering foodservice packaging solutions made from renewable and recycled resources.

Its product portfolio includes cups, plates, bowls, lids, utensils and containers.

Last month, the company added a new compostable, soak-proof half pans and lids to its Regalia line of foodservice ware.

The products can be used by restaurants and caterers who prefer eco-friendly solutions.

In December 2019, the company introduced a new line of compostable utensils for the Cutlerease system, including Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI)-certified fork, knife or spoon.
