SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn. – Clearly Clean Products, LLC has launched a recyclable modified atmosphere package tray for food products.
Clearly Clean uses a patented process of applying a peelable, thin liner to an RPET tray, the same material of water bottles. The liner provides barrier protection to maintain shelf life and can be customized. The tray can be used to package meat, poultry, entrées and kabobs. The tray is manufactured in the US and comes in industry-standard sizes: 10S and 3P.
“Clearly Clean is proud to be able to help companies extend their sustainability focus from the farm to the store to the home,” said Jeff Maguire, president of Clearly Clean Products, LLC. “Weis Markets is an example of a company who has embraced this concept.”
Weis Markets has adapted the recyclable tray as part of its sustainability strategy and has recently replaced all of its lid-sealed plastic trays for meat products.
“This new packaging program underscores our strong commitment to adopting sustainable practices to minimize our impact on the environment,” said Patti Olenick, sustainability manager for Weis Markets. “We are continually increasing our conservation efforts, providing recycling opportunities for both our associates and customers, and evaluating our store designs to meet with our standards for environmental leadership and stewardship. We strive to lead by example, helping to make a significant difference in our communities.”
