Sushi & Deli tray range – an ongoing success

The Sushi & Deli tray range of Coveris is the result of ongoing development and continuous improvement. Over the years, more and more products, such as biscuits, pastry, tapas, cheese and other snacks, have found their way onto the trays, which were formerly only used as sushi trays. The trays convince by its sleek design, its black base, combined with a crystal-clear PET lid, giving the packed products a high‑quality look and premium image. A special feature of the trays is the open base with separate compartments. The standard range is available in many different sizes and designs (compartments) and is successfully sold throughout Europe & the UK. Recently, Coveris has also developed a number of new, custom-made versions in cooperation with its clients who are catering companies, quick service restaurants or wholesalers and retailers.

Crystal-clear, re-closable PET packaging solutions for healthy snacking products

In the recent years, the trend for healthy snacking continued to boom, which has resulted in a growing demand for adequate product packaging from snack and fresh food companies. To meet the growing demand Coveris has heavily invested in PET capabilities and developed a number of PET series around cups, pots, tumblers and containers, which are supplied to vegetable or fruit producers and other so-called healthy snack supplier. The crystal-clear properties of the PET material makes the packaging not only highly appealing to consumers but also allows their view on the packaged product, building on the trend of authenticity. Furthermore, the packaging is highly convenient as the product can be easily consumed out of home or on the go. Thanks to a number of different lidding solutions, the product can also be re-closed for later consumption. In combination with high-quality, customized printing in up to 8 colors, the PET series are the perfect solution for individual branding.
