The cold chain is a recurring problem during transport of foodstuffs. The insulating properties of EPS are very useful in this application area.

We frequently come across EPS in the form of fish boxes and meat trays. This type of packaging is also widely used to transport and protect fruit and vegetables and dairy products.

Specific packaging made of EPS and EPP is used in catering (precooked meals) to keep the food hot during transport between the kitchen and table.
