Monte Package Co. has unveiled EarthChoice, a line of compostable fiber trays.
Monte Package’s alliance with Pactiv Corp., Lake Forest, Ill., gives the Riverside, Mich.-based firm exclusive distribution rights in North American to sell the EarthChoice trays, said Kate Proos, inside sales and customer service associate.
The trays are made of bamboo and sugarcane bagasse, the pulp left after the juice has been extracted from the plants, she said.
“The EarthChoice trays are targeted at retailers and are designed to replace the foam trays commonly in use,” Proos said.
The 100% compostable trays are available in a variety of sizes, are certified biodegradable and are soak-resistant, Proos said.
Specific sizes and additional details are available at the Monte Package Co. website.
