PaperSeal™ Shape Tray


PaperSeal Shape is the latest addition to the multi-award-winning PaperSeal fiber-based tray portfolio.

It is ideal for fresh prepared fruit and salads, dips and chilled ready-to-eat meals where a modified atmosphere is required to maintain shelf life.

PaperSeal Shape reduces plastic by 80 – 90 percent.

The tray delivers excellent rigidity thanks to the double-flange construction and is perfect for non-rectangular and multi-compartment trays as well as deeper tray formats.

Developed in partnership with G. Mondini, world-leaders in tray sealing technology, PaperSeal trays offer an effective, recyclable alternative to traditional plastic trays.

Benefits of the PaperSeal™ Shape Tray

  • Because the body of the tray is made from paperboard, PaperSeal Shape trays typically use 80-90% less plastic than traditional trays, depending on application1
  • The liner is easily separated from the paperboard portion of the tray after use so that the paperboard can be recycled in kerbside waste streams 2
  • Can be supplied unlined if a barrier is not required, eliminating plastic from the main body of the tray
  • The paperboard is made from renewable plant-based fiber, sourced from sustainably managed forests
Consumer Experience
  • The double-flange, rigid tray delivers a seal integrity equivalent to a plastic tray
  • The integrity of the seal ensures the product stays fresh, delivering a shelf-life equivalent to a plastic tray
  • High-quality graphics can be printed on both the internal and external surface, delivering on-shelf differentiation
Asset 6
Operational Flexibility
  • The tray can be supplied formed or flat, the latter resulting in lower transport and storage costs compared to pre-made trays
  • Reduced inventory requirements thanks to the availability of smaller minimum purchase quantities
  • Can be run on existing tray sealing machines, removing the need for investment in new equipment3

1 Plastic reduction figures are for the tray and exclude the lidding film, which is expected to be similar to film used for current trays. Each PaperSeal tray is specified on a case-by-case basis to minimize plastic content, at levels even below 10% where possible.

2 In some countries (depending on the percentage of plastic), the lined tray is accepted for recycling without the liner having been removed.

3 Modification to the sealing tool may be required.
