Paperboard Clamshells and Trays

Paperboard clamshells and trays are one-piece structures that are ideal for holding hot or cold food items like sandwiches, sides, hot dogs, and single slices of pizza.

Clamshells have a base and hinged lid to keep items enclosed and can be designed with or without a window in a variety of shapes and sizes. They’re perfect for operators looking for a single item with a built-in lid to reduce SKUs.

Trays are designed to separate multiple food items where a to-go lid is not needed, like a pizza parlor or sandwich shop. The portfolio includes variants for sandwiches, single-slice pizza, and hot dogs.
