Our moulded fibre apple tray range is designed to provide a truly versatile range of options that can easily accommodate varying fruit sizes and packaging considerations. Moulded-fibre, also commonly referred to as ‘pulp paper’ or ‘moulded pulp’, is one of the most sustainable packaging materials. The material is manufactured form recycled materials as well as offering continued recyclability and is industrially compostable.
Moulded fibre trays feature the benefit of being manufactured from previously recycled materials as well as being able to be easily recycled again at their next end-of-life stage. These trays also bear the OPRL recycle label.
Our moulded fibre apple trays are available in four convenient and versatile size options, option ‘0’ (accommodating 4 apples), option ‘1’ (accommodating 6 apples), option ‘1.5’ (accommodating 6 larger apples) and option ‘2’ (accommodating 8 apples).
These trays are moulded and shaped to provide the ideal fit for a wide range of apple varieties. Our mid-size tray options also offer increased produce spacing or the ability to carry larger apples with ease.
In addition to the trays’ ease of recyclability, they also offer the benefit of being industrially compostable – further enhancing their environmental credentials. For more information on compostability, refer to our sustainability hub.
Our moulded fibre trays are all immediately available with rapid delivery available. This is further supported by our industry accredited and highly efficient supply chain, proving logistical expertise and total reliability.
We offer moulded fibre tray options for a range of other fruits including avocados, berries, pears and even vegetables. This wide product range is part of our commitment to offering the best sustainability options to the largest possible range of produce.
