Recyclable Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) Tray

Recyclable Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) Tray

Clearly Clean’s recyclable Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) trays enable our clients to achieve longer shelf life (without the need for preservatives) by protecting food from its natural enemies: oxygen and water. The Clearly Clean MAP tray includes a proprietary film, which provides the appropriate bonding surface for the lidding material and the necessary barrier properties.  Consumers merely need to peel away the protective liner to recycle the 100% recyclable base tray, which is marked with the #1 resin code (the most recyclable plastic). Our PET trays provide a superior barrier alternative to polypropylene and polystyrene trays.

Our MAP trays can be customized in terms of size, thickness, shape, and color.  They are available with or without pads.

Reduce product loss and increase customer satisfaction:

  • The proprietary smooth-edge mitigates leakers during production and transportation.

  • This tray is three times stronger than Styrofoam.  

  • It will not break during transportation and will not bow tie due to weak walls.
  • It will withstand high-speed processors without a loss in structural strength.
Recyclable Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) Trays

Make a quick and easy change from polystyrene or polypropylene (PP):

  • Clearly Clean’s trays can immediately replace all plastic foam trays on high-speed packaging machinery; there is no need to change equipment.

Recyclable MAP Tray

Make the product the center of attention:

  • The tray comes in multiple colors, including crystal clear. This option allows the product to be the focal point of the tray and enables it to be examined from all angles, which studies have proven is preferred by Millennials (soon to be the largest working / living population).

Maximum shelf appeal:

  • Our trays will make your product stand out from the competition.  Words used to describe their look include “clean,” “fresh,” and “different.”  Aren’t these words that you would want associated with your brand? Your customers will notice a difference – and so will future generations.

Longer shelf life:

  • Clearly Clean’s MAP trays allow for a longer shelf life through its proprietary CCP barrier.
