Frozen ready meal manufacturer Cook has appointed Faerch Plast as its sole supplier of crystalline polyethylene terephthalate (CPET) trays

The decision to appoint Faerch Plast was in large part down to the high performance of its specially developed Frost CPET material in extreme temperatures down to -20°C.

"Although we have used Faerch Plast for over 12 years, it wasn't until they developed the Frost CPET specifically for frozen meal concepts that we could consider moving more of the CPET business across," says Tony Mayer, head of operational procurement at Cook.

Faerch Plast's range of CPET trays features dual ovenability and a wide temperature tolerance from -20°C to 220°C, for freezer-to-oven or microwave convenience. CPET is said to eliminate negative effects on food flavour and aroma, giving consumers well protected, more versatile and better tasting meals.
