Oliver chooses Nicholl for Europe


As part of its ongoing product diversification programme, Nicholl Food Packaging has been appointed European distributor of Oliver Pulp Trays, said to have already been a huge success in the US market as they combine sustainable benefits with several consumer convenience features.

The new trays are manufactured from 100% pre-consumed material, which is both recyclable and compostable by commercial recyclers, offering a 100% renewable resource solution for food trays. Manufactured to food grade standards, the trays are claimed by Nicholl as suitable for oven temperatures up to 204°C. They can be microwaved, and are freezable to -40°C. Typical applications include fresh and frozen products, ready meals and convenience foods.

"We believe the Oliver trays offer a real point of difference that will appeal to both manufacturers and consumers," said Nicholl Food Packaging Group chief executive John Griffiths. "While their sustainability benefits are wholly relevant in today's environmentally-conscious world, equally important is that these advantages have not been at the expense of consumer convenience, which remains a vital consideration in highly competitive markets."
