Manufactured with EcoStar food-safe recycled PET, Placon, a leading North American designer and thermoformer of custom and stock food packaging, is proud to introduce its new Fresh ‘n Clear CaterEase plastic catering tray and bowl line at the 2013 National Restaurant Association (NRA) Show in Chicago.
The black crush- and crack-resistant party platters, bowls and lids are designed to securely, attractively and sustainably present a wide assortment of foods from sandwiches, salads, fruits and veggies to desserts. The tight lid seals ensure product freshness while helping prevent unexpected removal of lids from bases during handling and transport.
The tray’s durable lid design features no sidewall ribbing for product visibility, allowing food styling and product freshness to take center stage. Clean-up is reportedly made easy and earth-friendly with recyclable bowls, trays and lids manufactured with up to 100 percent post-consumer content from bottles and thermoforms diverted from landfills.
The line’s single and multi-compartment tray base’ venting system is engineered to slowly release trapped air when the lid is snapped on, preventing lid “ballooning” for easy stacking. For maximizing brand impact, the entire CaterEase line can be custom engraved or embossed with company logos or other designs for strong brand visibility.
