The Simple Yet Crucial Role of Plastic Tray in a Bakery


Originally designed to load and distribute bread to shops and supermarkets, the plastic tray is now widely used by other industries. These include the textile manufacturers, food processing, confectionary, the farming and meat industries, and even the print industry.


A plastic tray is typically made from food grade polypropylene with ventilation holes. They stack securely and save space even when not in use.


They are available in a wide range of sizes and depths, including open fronted models. Each has benefits for particular applications. No matter how different their uses are, their key function is to offer safe and easy transport of baked goods for daily operations.


They are not heavy, but can handle large quantities of items like freshly baked breads, rolls, and other food products. When packed too tightly, however, baked goods are very susceptible to damage. The fresher these food products are, the more vulnerable they are. They can also be bulky and require a lot of room with minimum stacking. The best solution for this case is a lightweight yet durable plastic tray that can hold and carry bulky and uneven loads. Their ability to stack without damaging the contents, while showing product packaging and your brand name makes them indispensable. The best plastic trays should also be able to accommodate automated handling equipment or a hand-truck delivery. Another ideal design consideration is a smooth surface without rough edges to avoid tearing packaging. This additionally makes the trays easier to clean.
