  • Provide visual appeal, capturing the attention of consumers;
  • Made with materials that comply with FDA and Health Canada’s food safety requirements.

“Cascades has been providing eco-friendly solutions for the food industry for decades, including trays, cup carriers, boxes and a wide range of packaging for producers, wholesalers and retailers. With the launch of Cascades FreshTM, we are refining our service offering and reaffirming our leading position in the growing packaging solutions market, all while enabling consumers to eat fresh.
