Earthcycle trays are now being produced in Canada.

Hantsport, Nova Scotia-based CKF Inc. is making the environmentally-friendly trays at its Hantsport facility, according to a company news release.

CKF bought Earthcycle Packaging in 2013.

“Our decision to invest in the people and the technology to manufacture Earthcycle in Canada further delivers on our sustainability mission” Ian Anderson, CKF’s president, said in the release. “Consumers today have a wider definition of sustainability, one that incorporates socially responsible manufacturing and support of local businesses.”

The first trays produced in Canada are being delivered to Los Angeles-based asparagus specialist Gourmet Trading LLC.

“We were thrilled when we learned about CKF’s plans to produce in North America,” Brian Miller, Gourmet Trading president, said in the release. “The environmental benefits of the Earthcycle line combined with North American manufacturing make it easy for our end consumers to make the sustainable lifestyle choices they are demanding. Also, in buying from CKF, our supply chains are shortened, allowing us to manage our inventory and be sure of product when we need it.”
