CINCINNATI (July 10, 2024)—ProAmpac, a leader in flexible packaging and material science, proudly announces the launch of its innovative ProActive Recyclable Fresh Tray FT-1000. This groundbreaking, patent-pending polypropylene-based tray is classified as plastic #5 and approved for curbside recycling. It introduces the food service and grocery markets to an easily recyclable lightweight foam tray.

"ProActive Recyclable Fresh Tray FT-1000 offers grocery and food retail markets a robust, sustainable packaging solution that aligns seamlessly with their operational needs," concludes Pascal Labrie, vice president general manager for ProAmpac’s tray business. "By adopting the FT-1000, these sectors can meet their sustainability goals without compromising performance or customer satisfaction. This tray is a significant step forward in our commitment to supporting the food industry's environmental initiatives and advancing recyclable packaging choices."

Durability is another cornerstone of the FT-1000. With robust impact resistance and outstanding stiffness, this tray supports a variety of food service and grocery applications such as meat, seafood, dairy, and produce. Additionally, it boasts excellent water and grease resistance, ensuring optimum shelf appearance and product freshness.

“Without compromising performance, ProActive Recyclable Fresh Tray FT-1000 maintains line speed on wrapping equipment, matching the efficiency of traditional rigid trays. Also, ProAmpac’s FT-1000 is comprised of up to 90% air, significantly reducing material footprint, making this innovative technology a more sustainable alternative,” states Maryam Dini, technical specialist at ProAmpac.
