New Sustainable Food Packaging Trays


Cascades, a North America and European based packaging company, launched the first thermoformed cardboard tray. The product is made from 100 percent recycled and recyclable cardboard and has a recyclable water-based barrier coating which prevents moisture. Since sustainable packaging is becoming more important due to retail regulations and consumer demand, the cardboard tray makes a great alternative to plastic and foam trays. 

This product is currently being used in Canada for mini cucumbers, and just this month, a US customer started using the trays for sweet corn. The thermorformed trays are available in a variety of sizes and are suitable for a wide range of fruits and vegetables. The package will stand out even more if it is combined with a compostable top seal film, making it a fully sustainable solution.

If you would like to receive samples of this tray, please contact your local Falcon Packaging representative. Click Here to download the specification sheet for the thermoformed trays.
