Success case: compostable meat trays
More and more companies are looking to reduce or eliminate the impact of their packaging on the environment. The case of meat trays is a clear example of the application of compostable materials. This is because packaging containing organic waste makes recycling less feasible.
Considering this, Prime Biopolymers, a bioplastic company, has focused part of its efforts on the development of a compostable material suitable for the manufacture of meat trays.
This new product has become the ideal and definitive alternative for the meat industry to abandon traditional plastic and join the sustainable revolution.
This transparent meat trays have been developed with the ZIMIA X321 bioplastic grade. A compostable material that, in addition, does not generate difficulties when being processed by conventional machinery.
“We are very pleased to have been able to develop new degrees of bioplastics aimed at the current needs of the food sector. It represents a sustainable solution and immediate application in the manufacturing line that responds to the new environmental concerns of the consumer” says Manuel Suárez, director of Prime Biopolymers.
The innovation and development team has sought the ideal formula for the manufacture of these meat trays. The ZIMIA X321 bioplastic is a grade for applications that require tenacity and high transparency even at low temperatures.
“The requirements of each application are unique. That’s why we develop each new material for those specifications.”

Prime Biopolymers seeks to provide definitive solutions that suit the needs of each application. Thanks to the development of bespoke bioplastics and the specialization of our installations, there are already several success stories that we have known. An example of this is the catering trays with compostable material.
In short, we have once again achieved our main objective of bringing added value to the packaging sector in order to make the transition to the now compulsory circular economy easier.
