KINGSEY FALLS, QC, Canada -- Cascades, a leader in eco-friendly recycling, hygiene and packaging solutions, is rolling out a cardboard tray certified according to Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) standards, made from 100% recycled fibers, mainly from post-consumer sources, and that is fully recyclable at the end of its life.

The tray can be completely recycled thanks to the use of a water-based barrier coating that protects it against humidity and thus enhances packaging efficiency without negatively affecting the recyclability of the cardboard. The patented coating is a recyclable and compostable replacement solution for traditional wax- or plastic-based applications widely used in cardboard food packaging, where cardboard recyclability poses some challenges.

The "made in Canada" packaging solution meets U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requirements. Its resistance to humidity and ability to maintain its rigid form when refrigerated make it a well suited solution for packaging fruits, vegetables and proteins.
