Country Choice has launched a new range of packaging that promises a cost saving of 50% for caterers.

The savoury goods tray and bag packaging range is easy to assemble and comes in three pack sizes, all of which use less material and improve product visibility. Each pack consists of a recyclable heat-resistant cardboard tray and a perforated film bag, allowing products within to breathe.

The Long Savoury tray and bag holds six- and eight-inch sausage rolls, as well as the company’s Potato Dog and Big Bite sausage roll. The Square Savoury tray and bag is suitable for its entire range of savoury bakes and pies, leaving the Large Savoury tray and bag for all pasties and turnovers.

The bags can be sealed with a food label or bag sealer, while a tray colour coding system helps to differentiate between product categories.

The new-style bags and boxes, which must be ordered separately, said the company, come in 1,000 packed unit cases and will replace all of Country Choice’s existing savoury box packaging.
