Saudi Arabian dairy foods giant, Almarai, has selected OCTAL’s high definition DPET/PE™ trays for packaging its poultry product line, Alyoum. OCTAL’s high-grade trays replace traditional polypropylene / polyethylene containers, providing Almarai a cost-effective100% recyclable product.

OCTAL’s DPET/PE™ sheet has set the global standard in the manufacturing of uniform high-quality packaging products. DPET/PE™ is ideally suited to serve a growing market such as fresh poultry through its process efficiency that combines strength with flexibility and consistency to offer a superior grade packaging solution.

William J. Barenberg Jr. COO, OCTAL, said, “Until recently, meat and poultry processors widely used inefficient packaging. Today, OCTAL is leading the global conversion from traditional packaging materials to its cutting edge, environmentally efficient and mechanically advanced products. Partnering with large food and beverage producers such as Almarai demonstrates the reputation our products hold.”

OCTAL’s high definition thermoforming can cater for a variety of shapes and sizes. The direct-to-sheet process eliminates the most energy consuming and defect-prone processes to deliver a flawless sheet.
