NEWS – NOVEMBER 2017
Oppenheimer NZ Ltd have now launched a range of turned edge MRT PET tray products for the retail meat, bakery and food service industries.
The MRT (or Moisture Retention Trays) are available in a range of standard sizes – 5″ x 8″, 6″ x 10″ and 8″ x 10″ and in Clear, Blue and Black to fit the current New Zealand market. Custom sizes and colours are also available on request. Moisture retention cells in the base of the trays are designed to hold liquid in place with surface tension preventing the trays from leaking, while allowing for easy rinsing of the trays prior to recycling.
Raised discs in the base of the tray lift the meat very slightly which enables liquid to reach all cells in the base of the trays. The edges of the tray are rolled meaning edges that will not cut the Vitafilm or any staff or customers hands during handling.
The MRT trays are produced using 100% recyclable PET (1) plastic meaning that rinsed trays can be placed in kerbside recycling bins and production of the trays is completed under strict food industry conditions with all food contact accreditation available on request.
