FlatSkin® is a vacuum skin packaging system that uses a flat cardboard tray carrier with a removable thin plastic liner. It results in more sustainability as it reduces the amount of packaging material and improves the recyclability. As well, it offers a real eye catching presentation at retail. The pack provides sufficient space for storytelling, including the sustainability message and the handling of the two materials (cardboard and plastic) for optimal waste disposal.

Polystyrene Foam Trays

Product Information

True to its values, which include recycling and protecting the environment, Cascades has accomplished a major first step in North America by introducing recycled material into its EVOK® polystyrene foam food trays. Containing 50% recycled material, EVOK is designed for packaging fresh meats, fish, poultry and fresh produce.

By substituting a portion of the virgin material with recycled content, Cascades has reduced the environmental impact of its polystyrene foam packaging. In addition to offering food packaging that is just as efficient as traditional polystyrene foam trays, EVOK® products allow for a 20% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared with Cascades’ previous polystyrene foam packaging. Now that’s progress!

rPET Plastic MAP Trays

PET is more suited to the demands of a global supply chain, offering a significantly improved gas barrier compared to PP, enhancing the shelf life of food contained within and helping to minimize food waste both in-store and at the consumer level. Research has shown that consumers spend three times longer choosing their meat and poultry in store, in order to assess its freshness, compared to other food items. PET aides purchasing decisions by offering crystal clear tray presentation compared to the cloudy appearance of PP.
 
PET also introduces greater production efficiency to packing lines. Trays manufactured using rPET laminated to PE can be sealed at reduced temperatures in comparison to PP trays and as a result use less energy.
