New, recyclable tray can use MAP

April 22
10:15 2013

Clearly Clean Products has introduced what could be the world’s first recyclable MAP (Modified Atmosphere Pack) tray for meat, poultry and other fresh products. The FDA-compliant tray utilizes a patented process of applying a peelable, thin liner to an RPET tray, the same material that is used in water bottles. The patented, printed liner provides barrier protection to maintain shelf life and can be customized.

Currently environmentally focused meat packers and processors are compelled to use foam or plastic MAP trays, which is counter to their sustainability ambitions. Weis Markets has adopted Clearly Clean’s recyclable tray as part of its sustainability strategy and hasrecently replaced all of its lid-sealed plastic trays for meat products – making it the first grocery chain to go green with its MAP trays.

Clearly Clean’s tray is simple for the processors to seal — and easy for consumers to use.  The trays operate with existing  packaging and sealingequipment. Consumers handle them in the same way they have always done, except they are instructed to simply peel and discard the liners and recycle the trays.

They is currently manufactured for the USA market and comes in industry-standard sizes: 10S and 3P. It is also competitively priced with current, non-recyclable MAP trays, claims the company.
