Still the Ultimate Food Tray – For Good Reasons

Polystyrene foam trays are the most widely used package for fresh proteins at traditional, supercenter, club and fresh format grocery retailers, particularly for whole muscle and poultry products. 1

Consumers continue to associate polystyrene foam trays with the look and feel of store-wrapped proteins.

For more than 50 years, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration FDA (FDA) has determined that polystyrene is safe for use in food packaging.

Our polystyrene foam feedstock is converted into a finished product 32 times its original volume, virtually turning air into a strong and efficient package. 2

Made of 98% air, our polystyrene foam trays feature an inert material void of harmful chemicals that off-gas or leach during the tray’s use or disposal. 2

Polystyrene foam represents less than 1% of the total municipal solid waste stream by weight and volume 2
