If you operate a restaurant, catering business, school cafeteria or other food service venture, you know all too well that one of your trickiest tasks is figuring out the best way to present your goods to the masses. Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Food Tray.

Food trays are an economical, practical tool when it comes to serving patrons all types of treats – anything from sushi to sandwiches, French fries to chicken fingers. And today, there are more options than ever to choose from.

Food trays are grease-resistant, work well with either hot or cold foods and have a 1-piece design, making them easy for both you and your customers to deal with.

Let’s take a closer look at some wonderful choices available right here at

eco friendly food trays

Brown Kraft Food Trays: Natural, versatile

Brown kraft food trays are the perfect idea for serving samples, picnic items, side dishes or fried snacks. Food truck operators find them to be economical, trendy and practical, too.

They’re stackable, freezer safe, microwavable and leak resistant. In addition, you can feel good about using them for their earth-friendly properties. They’re recyclable, compostable and designated “green products.” Many of the ones we offer also are biodegradable and made of plant material in the good ole U.S.A.

The “What’s Hot 2022 Culinary Forecast” from the National Restaurant Association and American Culinary Federation found that:

“Sustainability, typically a big influencer on menus and on how restaurants operate—from serving locally sourced and sustainable proteins to practicing food-waste reduction and recycling in the front- and back-of-the-house—will continue in 2022, the survey indicates.”

Ranging in size from just 7 ounce all the way up to 5-pound capacity, there’s sure to be one to suit your foodie needs. Take a look at our Brown Kraft Food Trays here.

White Flatbread Trays: Serve up some snacks

When you’re trying to come up with a plan for your concession stand or picnic, consider a White Flatbread Food Tray. They’re just the right fit for small flatbreads, nachos, fries, fruits or veggies.

Stackable and earth-friendly, they’re easy to transport, easy to fill and no problem for your patrons to tote. Take a look at the White Flatbread Food Trays we offer.

Corrugated Food Trays: Heavy duty service

OK, so you’ve decided some type of a food tray would work perfectly for your business or event. The only hesitation you have is that what you’re serving might need a little more of a hefty tray to prevent drops and spills. Introducing  the corrugated version.

Stronger and more grease-resistant than paper food trays, they’re capable of safely holding an entrée without the need for additional packaging. Think of them as a fantastic replacement for a plastic, basket-style tray.

And again, once folks are finished with their hot or cold tasty treats, these trays can be recycled and are compostable.

We have two options to choose from, including the Natural Brown Kraft Dinner Corrugated Food Tray and Heavy-Duty Kraft Corrugated Food Tray, which also contains 20% post-consumer fiber.
