Pac Food will be demonstrating a new range of trays for the ready meal market at Foodpro.

Called CPET trays, they have been designed for convenience in a 'grab-heat-eat' context. Meals can be kept frozen and heated when ready, and are suitable for a wide range of cuisines, food styles, and applications.

The temperature range of these trays is -40°C to +220°C, which allows for the product to be stored in a deep freeze and placed directly into a hot oven or microwave for cooking.

The CPET range has many advantages and features that make it superior to other materials, specifically the glossy attractive finish, good barrier properties, various sizes and shapes, good sealing properties, leak-proof seal, vast range of temperatures and recyclability.

Pac Food offers various sizes and shapes, including the lidding film for the whole CPET range.

CPET trays are widely used in airline catering, foodservice, meal programs such as Meals on Wheels, central kitchens, and bakery products.
