Dolco develops new processor trays for meat and poultry products

PKBR Staff Writer Published 08 December 2017

Tekni-Plex firm Dolco Packaging has developed new processor trays for meat and poultry products.

The custom-designed trays will enable meat and poultry processors to be used for different products such as premium brats or sausages, meat patties, stuffed poultry or exotic meats.

Dolco’s in-house designers have created trays with various features, including compartments/dividers for sausages, deep-draw pockets for meat patties and structural indentations for easy removal.

Through using advanced processing technology, the company also produces a foam tray that is thicker than traditional meat trays.

In addition, the company produces processor-grade trays exclusively.

Dolco is providing standard trays in white, yellow and black colors, which can be used for a variety of meat and poultry products.

Dolco produces polystyrene (PS) foam egg cartons for the customers in the US. The firm also produces PET egg cartons, PS and PET mushroom tills, PS apple and pear tray.

With five manufacturing facilities in the US, the firm also manufactures industrial and custom packaging solutions for agricultural, food and food service markets.

In October this year, Genstar Capital acquired Tekni-Plex from American Securities for an undisclosed sum.

Tekni-Plex operates six business units – Colorite, Natvar, Tekni-Films/Gallazzi, Tri-Seal, Action Technology and Dolco Packaging.

The company provides packaging materials, medical compounds and precision-crafted medical tubing solutions for the medical, pharmaceutical, personal care, household and industrial and food and beverage markets.

With around 2,500 employees, the company carries out operations in Belgium, China, Costa Rica, Germany, India, Italy, Northern Ireland and the US.
