Food packaging: Pactiv invests nearly $12 Million to expand capacity for meat packaging trays

Pactiv Corporation has scheduled the final phase of a nearly $12 million equipment upgrade to increase capacity for its line of expanded polystyrene food processor trays. The two-year program—to update selected extrusion, thermoforming, padding, and packaging equipment in four manufacturing locations—is expected to be complete in early 2011 to meet anticipated customer demand.

“As a proven primary supplier to many of our large food processor customers, this investment ensures that we will be able to continue to provide quality products and service,” said Peter Lazaredes, Pactiv’s executive vice president and general manager, Foodservice/Food Packaging. “Food processors are responding to consumer preferences and we’re moving quickly to ensure continuous availability. Consumers prefer this type of meat packaging as the standard for freshness, quality, safety, and food flavor.”
