New system lightens tray weight

Linpac Packaging’s new tray, Rfresh Elite, is sturdier, lighter and recyclable

September 9, 2012   by Food in Canada staff

Birmingham, U.K. – Linpac Packaging will be introducing a super-lightweight mono-material tray for meat and poultry.

The Rfresh Elite range of rPET trays use a sealant on their flanges to create a secure seal with the lidding film, removing the industry standard laminated PE base film.

The patent-pending trays are 100 per cent recyclable.

Packers and food manufacturers have tested the sealing system, which the company has worked on for the past two years.


The new sealant is transparent and food-contact approved. Seal strength and seal-through-contamination is equal to current trays, says the company, and it’s considered a lock seal.
