I recently spoke with a packaging executive whose fingers are in the tray sealing and the thermoforming markets both abroad and in the U.S. I came away from our conversation with a clear appreciation that, with a few exceptions, thermoformed trays have a place in protein packaging; it’s just not first place.
In today's marketplace any discussion about trays quickly boils down to pre-made versus thermoformed. It's as though there is a right and a wrong answer. There isn't. Solid arguments can be made for both because each has its place.
