US-based commercial packaging firm Graphic Packaging has added a dual-ovenable solution to its PaperSeal tray range.

Named the PaperSeal Cook, the tray has been designed to suit oven and microwave-ready chilled and frozen food products.

The PaperSeal Cook tray comes with a one-piece continuous sealing flange designed to keep products from leaking and ensure sturdiness through the supply chain.

The solution uses up to 80% less plastic compared to traditional tray solutions. The tray’s liner film can be separated easily from the fully recyclable paperboard, which can then be recycled at consumer recycling stations.

Graphic Packaging global innovation and new business development senior vice-president Ricardo De Genova said: “We’ve transferred our PaperSeal technology to a convenient fibre-based ovenable and microwaveable solution that has all the benefits of the PaperSeal tray, along with a liner that can withstand the high temperatures required in cooking.

“As a business, we are inspired by consumer and market trends and aim to make a world of difference through our packaging, breaking ground with innovative fibre-based solutions in areas where they traditionally may not have had a place.

“Through collaboration with like-minded partners, we create viable and scalable fibre-based solutions for brands and retailers who have sustainability goals on their agenda.”

Graphic Packaging aims to make all its products fully recyclable by 2025 and seeks to help its customers replace their plastic packaging with sustainable fibre-based alternatives.

In March, the company launched a recyclable paperboard packaging solution to help beverage brands meet their plastic reduction goals.

The Cap-It clip is designed for multipack polyethylene terephthalate (PET) or recycled PET (rPET) bottles.

The paperboard clip, made of renewable materials, is designed to act as a sustainable alternative to traditional shrink wrap packaging.
