Corrugated Trays Prove More Efficient Than Plastic for Bread Transport

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

According to a report this past week by William Reed Business Media Co., Crawley, U.K., on their BakeryandSnacks.com website, replacing plastic bread trays with a corrugated board system could allow retailers in the U.S. to cut their prices while maintaining profit margins. The system has been introduced by a Toronto, Canada-based firm that began to have its corrugated trays replace plastic ones in November of this past year. 

Co-inventor of the system Mike Juma, who previously owned a commercial bakery with his brother, told BakeryandSnacks.com it could replace the expensive and inefficient plastic tray system in the future. The corrugated system for bread trays also carries on trucks almost double the amount of loaves per pallet compared with the current plastic tray systems, meaning fuel costs are cut even further. 

More information about this paper-based innovation beating plastic can be found online.
