Trayforma paperboard for ready-meal packaging trays

Trayforma for paperboard trays helps you serve up better retail food presentation – and environmental performance.

Trayforma by Stora Enso is a food-grade material for ready-meal packaging specially designed for pressed or folded trays, bowls and plates as well as multi-compartment trays and lids. Made from renewable resources and recyclable, Trayforma paperboard makes an environmentally friendly alternative to plastic or foil trays. And it offers a combination of great formability, secure sealing and high breakage protection, plus user convenience for today’s busy consumers – from freezer to oven to table.

Trayforma paperboard is a pure, safe food and ready-meal packaging material that delivers exceptional formability and printability. It is easily convertible and extremely stable, offering many opportunities for shelf differentiation. The Trayforma family offers board for microwavable, ovenable trays and non-ovenable trays, making it ideal as a chilled or frozen food packaging material, hot food packaging material or for ready-meal packaging options.

Trayforma also features an advanced three-layer fibre construction with CTMP in the middle layer, resulting in a lightweight yet stiff paperboard tray that helps you save on transport costs.

Barrier coating options for different temperatures

Trayforma PET can take the heat, with PET coating on the reverse side for conventional and microwave ovens. To enable use in high temperatures, this board is coated with black or white PET to provide robust protection from humidity, oxygen and grease, as well as good heat resistance. The food side of the packaging remains pure white even when exposed to high temperatures.

Trayforma Bio features a biodegradable coating on the reverse side and is intended for non-oven use, such as for salad packaging. This board is biodegradable and compostable in industrial composting.

Trayforma PE comes with PE coating on the reverse side and is suitable for non-oven use.
