Parx Materials has developed a new food tray which are made from recycled ocean waste plastic. Taking a material that served in the fishing industry as ropes and cages will now serve food in a second life as a serving tray.

Keeping Trays Cleaner with Unique Technology


The food trays are fitted with a unique technology that keeps the tray’s clean constantly. This technology integrates in the plastic a body's trace element that normally is vital for human body's immune system. The way this element is defending the body against bacteria and viruses is ingeniously integrated making the surface of the plastic material resistant to all germs, keeping the surface hygienic without adhesion and proliferation of the germs.

Official third-party testing following international protocols shows that there will be >99,9% lesser germs on the new trays compared to the trays used previously. This is a solution that makes good sense in times of the spread of diseases such as Covid-19. Bringing the utmost hygiene to these often-forgotten surfaces.

ZincIn Launches the Concept in Market

ZincIn is leveraging the advantages of these two inspiring concepts, launching these ocean waste hygienic food trays. “Working with the Parx Materials antimicrobial technology sparked a whole new array of possibilities that can bring benefits and advantages to our lives.” says Kjetil Christoffersen, founder of ZincIn.

Combining it with the NOPREC recycled material that has served our food chain already before and now once again, seemed a logical step.” Inspired by the vision and product concepts of ZincIn, Parx Materials also joined Christoffersen as a shareholder and board member in ZincIn, making it a strong alliance for the Scandinavian market and beyond, with more interesting products ahead.
