This distinction reflects Cascades’ commitment to creating packaging that is both high-performing and environmentally friendly, says the company. The tray has been specifically crafted to provide an effective and sustainable packaging solution for products such as proteins, fresh fruits, and vegetables. It is reportedly recyclable and made from 100 percent recycled fibres to meet the expectations of customers looking for eco-designed packaging.

Furthermore, Cascades was also in the running for its new corrugated cardboard produce baskets with flaps.
