Why Choose Polystyrene Foam Trays for Foodservice Applications?
Today, there are a number of different types of foam trays. However, if you’re looking for FDA-approved, safe for food contact food trays, our expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam trays are the perfect solution.
These types of foam trays are lightweight, relatively inexpensive, and can continue delivering excellent performance characteristics over an extended period of time. A few key reasons why foodservice facilities utilize EPS foam trays are:
- Excellent moisture resistance
- Exceptional thermal insulation
- Lightweight, easy-to-carry design
- Can be recycled
- Extremely durable
- Can be branded with printing and adhesive labeling
- Versatile in strength
- Can be easily organized in a shingled or stacked manner
- Shatter-resistant — even in extreme temperatures.
- Available in different sizes and shapes
- Resistant to compressions
- High-shock absorbency
- FDA-approved for food use
In addition to being food safety compliant, polystyrene foam trays are a more sanitary type of food packaging due to being disposable.
And if you operate a blast-freeze operation that introduces the trays to 28° F or more for an hour, some solid materials will become brittle. However, our foam polystyrene trays are uniquely designed to remain stable across a vast range of temperatures.
Environmental & Economic Benefits of Polystyrene Foam Trays
Polystyrene foam trays are a low-density material, which means there is a lot of air in the product. In fact, polystyrene foam trays have an air composition that ranges anywhere from 96-98% air while having 2-4% polystyrene.
Polystyrene Foam Trays Can Help with Source Reduction
Because of the low amount of polystyrene content, using polystyrene foam trays means you are reducing the amount of material you use. This is a process called source reduction. In addition to keeping your costs down, there is much less material that will end up in a landfill.
Polystyrene Foam Trays Are Recyclable
At the same time, our polystyrene foam trays are recyclable — contrary to popular belief. Polystyrene foam trays have the #6 recycling symbol and can be extruded into polystyrene solid pellets. Then, the pellets can be reused to make products like:
- Foodservice packaging
- Coat hangers
- Picture frames
- And more

Is Polystyrene EPS Foam Trays the Same as Styrofoam Trays?
While most people assume polystyrene foam trays are synonymous with Styrofoam, the two are very different products. Styrofoam is a name that is owned and trademarked by Dow Chemical Company. Manufacturing Styrofoam involves minimizing the amount of air that gets through the material, which makes it extremely tough.
The toughness of Styrofoam makes it ideal for construction applications, such as floor insulation, wall insulation, roof insulation, etc. It is also used for crafts, arts, floral, and special events.
On the other hand, our polystyrene EPS foam trays are made through a molding process that injects substantial amounts of air while still capturing the insulation advantages of foam. This allows the material to leverage the excellent insulation qualities of foam while using exponentially less of it.
