Aragon-based firm Araven has added to its range of food containers with its new GastroNorm polycarbonate tubs.
The product, which was presented in January at the international gastronomic event, Madrid Fusion and, in February, at the professional show, HIP (Hospitality Innovation Planet), includes airtight lids with a rubber seal to ensure maximum protection of the food.
GastroNorm tubs are also perforated with holes to allow liquids to drain more quickly to the base of the tub without coming into contact with the food again.
This design not only reduces the defrosting time, but also makes them the ideal container for fresh foods that give off liquids, such as meat and fish, as they separate the liquid from the food itself, maintaining quality and reducing the level of waste.
Likewise, they are the best option for washing and draining vegetables, rice and pasta, or for displaying products for service, such as cut fruit.
Finally, this range enjoys all the benefits of polycarbonate, a transparent material that allows you to see what’s inside and does not stain from the acids and colourants in sauces; it has a great resistance to impact and maintains its properties from the lowest to the highest temperatures, so it is perfect for both freezing and for preparations like a bain-marie; and it can be easily cleaned in the dishwasher.
Araven’s tubs also comply with the PC-SAFE regulations on migrations of plastic substances to foods, they have the NSF Certification (National Sanitation Foundation) and, thanks to their special design, prevent the accumulation of debris.
