Why Replace the Current EPS Tray?

EPS trays are made from virgin material and are NOT recyclable

  •  Sanitation of current EPS trays is costly and may be of limited effectiveness in some circumstances
  •  Aging EPS trays have several issues related to production especially from a disease management standpoint
  • There are environmental concerns with the current EPS tray. There is approximately 10 million pounds of EPS material  in the environment from EPS trays.
