Fiber-based packaging leader Graphic Packaging International has unveiled the latest addition to its multi-award-winning PaperSeal™ range: PaperSeal Shape.
A patented paperboard food tray designed for round, deep and multi-compartment applications, PaperSeal Shape represents the latest step in the company’s mission to improve access to high quality fiber-based alternatives to single-use plastic packaging. Paul Tye, director of global business development – trays at Graphic Packaging, said, “The introduction of PaperSeal Shape means we now have a PaperSeal tray solution that meets a wider range of customer needs – including those requiring a modified atmosphere solution in more complex shapes, such as bowls and multi-compartment designs.
“More customers can now help to meet their single-use plastic reduction goals with a recyclable, fiber-based tray solution that offers excellent rigidity and seal integrity to protect the product and preserve its shelf-life.”
PaperSeal Shape reduces plastic by up to 90 percent compared to traditional plastic trays. The liner can be easily removed by the consumer post-use and the paperboard portion of the tray recycled in standard paper recycling streams. Dependent on application and barrier requirements, PaperSeal Shape can be supplied without a liner, reducing plastic even further.
As with other trays in the range, PaperSeal Shape can be supplied flat or fully formed thanks to a network of Graphic Packaging facilities and lining partners across the world.
The PaperSeal range also includes:
PaperSeal Original for fresh and processed protein, fresh pasta, salads and prepared fruit requiring modified atmosphere in a rectangular tray
PaperSeal Skin for fresh and processed protein applications requiring vacuum skin packaging
PaperSeal Cook, a dual-ovenable modified atmosphere tray for fresh ready-to-eat meals
PaperSeal Slice for sliced meats and cheeses requiring modified atmosphere
