ProAmpac technical specialist Maryam Dini said: “Without compromising performance, ProActive Recyclable Fresh Tray FT-1000 maintains line speed on wrapping equipment, matching the efficiency of traditional rigid trays.

The company also unveiled ProActive Recyclable FiberCool, a kerbside-recyclable insulated bag for food and grocery delivery, which reportedly boasts better temperature retention than traditional options.
