Many of today's consumers are so busy with their careers that they hardly have time to cook for themselves. It is hardly surprising that they often make do with pre-prepared meals from the freezer. At the same time, there is a growing realization of the importance of a healthy diet.
This is why an increasing number of organic food producers are introducing ready meals. There is one problem, however: the packaging. Materials such as plastic or aluminium foil are not acceptable to environmentally aware customers. This is just one good reason why you should consider packaging your meals in our cardboard trays.
They are flat-packed boxes open at the top. Our cardboard trays come in 2 sizes:
They are made of chromo duplex board with a basis weight of 500 gsm. Since the board we use is very thick and has a thin polymer coating on the inside, the trays are also well suited to keeping liquid contents. The thick edge facilitates the use of a suitable material to act as a cover or a seal. Foil is often used for this purpose. This keeps non-recyclable waste to a minimum.
The material they are made from is extremely tough. Consequently, cardboard trays are ideal for stacking; no additional outer package is needed. Because chromo duplex board can withstand temperatures from -20°C to + 200°C, the consumer can put them in the oven straight from the freezer. Since it does not contain any metal, it is also suitable for the microwave.
The exterior of the cardboard trays consists of a thin layer of fine, white paper. Not only can you print your advertising message on it; you can also print the obligatory contents information along with the EAN number so that the package can be scanned directly at the supermarket checkout.
Whether a product is successful on the market or not depends to a large degree on its packaging. German supermarkets stock products from all around the world and customers make their buying decisions in fractions of a second. Well-designed packaging is therefore vital. We are happy to advise you on all matters related to design and can offer you the option of either customising one of our proven templates or uploading your own design to our website.
