MAP-Capable Paper-Based Tray Innovative New Food Packaging Option

Recently in food packaging news, it was announced that PinnPACK is supplying a first-of-its-kind hybrid tray, designed to be freezer safe and allow for microwave or conventional oven reheating.  The paper-based "DeLight" tray offers MAP (modified atmosphere packaging) level barrier protection and helps products stand apart, due to the fact that the hybrid tray allows for printing directly on the tray.

 
Available in 20 sizes, the paper-based tray utilizes plastic coatings for shelf life and as a barrier, and is a source-reduced alternative for frozen foods often packaged in plastic trays.  Director of the new Oxnard, CA PinnPACK division, Jason Franek, said the paperboard is specially coated with a formulated PP or PET, depending on the application.  Sizes range from 8 oz. to 100 oz. specialty foodservice trays.   
 
Farahnik also said PinnPACK currently has customers of the DeLight paper-based hybrid food trays in Australia and Europe, and has recently acquired the rights and brought the package to the U.S. customer base and sales force.  He went on to say that, with a focus on preserving natural resources, customers enjoy a reduction in overall packaging, as boxes and carton sleeves are eliminated since images and other information can be printed directly on the tray.
