Frequently Asked Questions
The tray is made from wheat straw, a natural fiber and agricultural by-product. The plastic lid is made from 80% rPET (post-consumer recycled PET plastic) and 20% PET plastic.
The plastic lids are recyclable (#1 resin code) and the trays are biodegradable and compostable.
The lid and tray slide together. The plastic lid has three folded over edges (left, right and bottom sides) and the fiber tray has a flange on all sides. The plastic cover simply slides over the fiber tray and is secured by a label. No extra equipment is needed. It is a very simple and effective method of securing the packaging from tampering.

No, SPI does not provide the labels or the label printing. However, the packaging is designed to be used with a standard 7.5″ x 1.5″ label.
We can provide a list of label sources for your reference — including digital, offset, inkjet. Depending on your volume and printing needs there are a variety of options.
The tray is approved for direct food contact, but the plastic cover is not. So, the Eco Hanging Pack should not be used for direct contact with food.
