The benefits of tray pooling

Our tray pooling services ensure efficient and reliable transportation of your fresh produce. Our reusable folding trays are the packaging standard in the European supply chain for fresh and packaged food.

Our reusable plastic trays have an average lifespan of more than seven years and are therefore much more durable than single-use alternatives. We check and clean our trays so they can be reused in the fresh supply chain.
