Rottneros has developed a food packaging tray for fresh food and take away. The tray is manufactured entirely with wooden raw material and is both recyclable, renewable and degradable, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The new product has been developed at Rottneros’ facility in Sunne, Sweden, where a completely new production line for the trays is currently building. The tray will replace today's plastic alternatives and will be used for convenience food, meat in grocery stores and take away food.
The tray is based entirely on Swedish wooden raw materials and can withstand moisture and keep the food fresh. To further develop the product, Rottneros is committed to developing environmentally friendly and biodegradable trays that at the same time can withstand moisture and fat from the food. Depending on the use, plastic is either completely eliminated or greatly reduced in products with high barrier requirements, as a renewable and degradable type of plastic can also be used.
Rottneros is an independent producer of market pulp.
