Food Packaging That Supports a Circular Economy

CPT trays enable your customer to actively support the universal goal of achieving a Circular Economy for plastic packaging. 

If food waste were a country, it would be the third largest producer of the world’s greenhouse gases with 4.4 billion tons of CO2  – after China (10.7 billion tons) and the USA (5.7 billion tons).*  In times of global water shortage it is also important to know that in the USA, for example, food losses alone account for 25% of the total water consumption.  Packaging, therefore, has an important protective function.

CPT’s Go Green Trays are made from polypropylene that is microwaveable and features good thermal and structural stability. The trays have excellent moisture barrier properties and can be be produced with a high oxygen barrier for extended shelf life.

Post-Industrial Recycled Materials

CPT’s manufacturing process enables it to reuse 100% the scrap it generates. CPT’s process encapsulates the post- industrial scrap between 2 layers of virgin material, so food contact is always with virgin plastic.

Post-Consumer Recycled Content

In addition to using post-industrial scrap, CPT uses post-consumer recycled packaging for use in their black colored trays.  CPT uses water bottle caps that have been collected in curbside recycling programs. These have been cleaned and reprocessed into ground flakes that are then used to make new black trays.
