SEE Unveils CRYOVAC® Compostable Tray for Sustainable Protein Packaging

Packaging solutions leader SEE has introduced a breakthrough in sustainable packaging with the launch of the CRYOVAC® brand compostable overwrap tray. This industrial compostable tray, made from 54% renewable wood cellulose, is designed to replace traditional expanded polystyrene (EPS) trays used for fresh poultry and red meat.

The CRYOVAC® tray made its debut at the International Product & Processing Expo (IPPE) in Atlanta from January 30 to February 1, showcasing SEE's commitment to sustainability. USDA-certified as biobased, the tray underwent rigorous testing to ensure its resilience in food processing equipment, extreme temperatures, and distribution challenges.

Certified by BPI as industrial compostable, the tray breaks down in large-scale composting facilities. Moreover, the resin is TÜV Austria certified as soil and marine biodegradable, ensuring natural decomposition without leaving toxic residue.

Tobias Grasso, SEE's President of the Americas Region, emphasized that the CRYOVAC® compostable overwrap tray is a breakthrough supporting environmental objectives. It aligns with SEE's broader sustainability pledge, aiming for 100% recyclable or reusable packaging by 2025 and net-zero carbon emissions by 2040.

SEE, formerly Sealed Air (NYSE:SEE), outlined its sustainability efforts in the SEE Impact Report for FY22, focusing on reducing landfill waste and cutting operational greenhouse gas emissions. The company, known for CRYOVAC® food packaging, reported $5.6 billion in sales in 2022, with 17,300 employees serving customers in over 120 countries.
