Caspak bamboo tray for Hagen's Organics meat deliveries
Caspak has developed a fibre modified atmospheric packaging (MAP) tray made from FSC Certified bamboo layered with a peelable plastic film for recycling ease. The packaging company has now partnered with Hagen’s Organics to supply its online customers with meat packaged in the new bamboo tray.
The Caspak Fibre MAP tray features a peelable thin plastic layer that can be peeled away from the fibre tray so that the two materials can be easily separated, and the film can be recycled through the RedCycle soft plastics system. This high-barrier sealant film makes it suitable for an array of meat, seafood and ready-meal applications.
Hagen’s switch to Fibre MAP Trays has resulted in an 80% total reduction in plastic from 20 g to just 4 g per meat tray.
The move was a ‘no-brainer’ according to Hagen’s Taylor Matthews: “The bamboo nature of the Caspak trays ticks all of the sustainability boxes, and the peelable plastic layer works to ensure that our meat is delivered to our customers in the best possible condition. Our farmers put a lot of work into growing organic meat and this is the ultimate solution to extend those efforts right through to the customer.”
When implementing the new Fibre MAP Trays Hagen’s was able to use existing machinery and continue to use the existing shrink lidding film that was already on hand, resulting in a seamless conversion process with no packaging wastage.
In general, Caspak’s Fibre MAP trays are designed to work with most existing product lines as there are no tooling changes required between plastic and bamboo trays.
