PaperSeal™ Wedge Tray

The PaperSeal™ Wedge tray is an ideal format for sliced cheeses and meats. It is an alternative to thermoformed trays, containing up to 80 percent less plastic, depending on the application. 

The pack offers great differentiation on the retail shelf thanks to the ability to print high-quality offset graphics on the inside and outside of the tray.  

The use of lighter-weight paperboard and innovative structural design delivers reduced pack weight and material use. Material use is further minimized as an additional label is not required because the information can be printed on the pack. 

Developed in partnership with G. Mondini, a world leader in tray sealing technology, PaperSeal trays offer a recyclable and sustainable alternative to plastic trays.

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