In an unprecedented move, Cook, a leading UK manufacturer and retailer of premium frozen ready meals, has strengthened its relationship with Faerch Plast by appointing the food packaging specialist as its sole supplier of CPET trays.

Following a competitive tender process. Cook chose Faerch Plast for a number of key reasons, most notably the consistently high performance of its specially developed Frost CPET material in extreme temperatures – down to -4°F (-20°C) degrees.

Tony Mayer, Head of Operational Procurement at Cook says: “Making Faerch Plast sole supplier was an unusual move for us. However, based on our past experience of Faerch Plast’s excellent products and service delivery, as well as competitive pricing, we were confident and happy to award them exclusivity. The fact that the trays are manufactured at their plant in Durham with flexible turnaround times was another influencing factor.

“Our impact on the planet is also of great concern and Faerch Plast has strong green credentials which helps us to meet our recycling and environmental targets,” he concludes.

Faerch Plast’s wide range of CPET trays feature dual ovenability and a wide temperature tolerance from -4F (-20c) degrees to 430F (220c) degrees, for freezer-to-oven or microwave convenience.
