A large range of trays in various shapes, dimensions and uses is available, always certified for food contact.
The use of one-use containers gives the following advantages:
> Protection during storage, transportation and retailing from contaminations, dirt, etc.
> Better preservation of quality and organoleptic characteristics.
> Shelf life extension, especially when combined with MAP
> The product is standardized, therefore its cost can be accurately controlled.
> The product is better presented and marketed.
> A proper package helps the consumer when using the product.
> Depending on the material, a tray can be suitable for the necessary for each product temperatures: from deep freeze up to microwaves, even baking in an oven!
Each material is suggested for a range of applications:
> CPET for baking in an oven or storage in deep freeze conditions or MAP (as it has a High Barrier).
> PP for hot filling, microwaves or pasteurization, or even short term MAP.
> APET & PS for enhanced product presentation, even short term MAP.
A tray can close either with a lid (separate or hinged) or sealed with a lid film at tray sealer, both available by Kapelis packaging.
