Cambro has extended its choice of foodservice trays with the launch of the Century Wood Grain range in five different finishes.
The new trays are designed to combine the look and feel of wood with durability, thanks to their polyester construction. They are said to be break-resistant and dishwash safe too.
While wooden trays can be stylish, they are not dishwasher safe and are prone to damage and warping. However, conventional wood-finishes in materials such as plastic or melamine can look and feel cheap. Therefore, Cambro believes its new Century Wood Grain Trays are the best solution, a dishwash safe polyester tray with the texture of wood grain and a matt wood finish.
The trays are designed to be scratch, shock, stain and chemical resistant. Reinforced corners should provide extra protection from impact.
The trays can handle a range of temperatures, from -40°C to +90°C. Their drying lugs should mean they can be stacked straight from washing, without fear of water pooling.
An ergonomic design should make them more comfortable for the user, with low profile corners allowing diners to rest their arms on them while eating. This design is also said to maximise the usable surface area of the tray.
Luke Carman, sales manager UK and Ireland for Cambro, said: “Retro, rustic, vintage, distressed, wood, the new trays tick the boxes of a multitude of design trends. Plus, they are ultra-practical. We expect them to be popular across all sectors of the foodservice market.”
The wood options are light oak, brown oak, dark oak, light olive and brown olive. The textured woodgrain pattern covers the tray from edge to edge, top and bottom.
All five are available in a choice of sizes, 33 x 43cm and 35.5 x 45.7cm. List price per tray starts from £12 and the Century Wood Grain Trays are supplied in cases of 12.
