Moen's newest modular tray formers produce finished trays in sizes that are produce-industry standard for tray length and width, but with the opportunity to vary depth or design. The dominant format for produce secondary packaging is the Bliss box, pioneered by Moen in the 1950's. In today's marketplace where there are so many designs, Moen identified the need for a platform that could be easily changed to accommodate the many possible variations. The resultant modular Tray Formers can offer a tray that is an attractive alternative to the Bliss box.
