Produce Trays

California Trays® is the most significant innovation in Produce Merchandising in over 50 years!

Our California Trays® have been designed to reduce labour and inventory costs. With the proper design, our produce trays can reduce the amount of inventory on a table and in refrigerated cases by as much as 30%, while achieving a bolder, deeper look. This one time saving, literally pays for the product. But more importantly, there are ongoing savings in reduction in shrink by as much as 1-2% with little or no training. They are extremely easy to install, very easy to maintain and clean, and provide superior drainage and ventilation.

Once installed our produce trays will outlast the life of a renovation, as they are very durable and virtually indestructible. Produce clerks love the product as it makes stock rotation a lot easier and keeps product fresher-looking longer.

Their unique construction allows the easy passage of refrigerated air from the back of a wet case through the bottom of the product and onto the produce. This keeps the produce below 5 degrees centigrade, extends the life of the produce, and reduces shrink giving the customer fresher product. As well, it works really well where misting is employed, leaving no standing water to harbor bacteria.

Additionally, there is no more need to “re-set” the produce department every 7-8 weeks, by tearing out all, or most of the materials they use to “dummy” up the tables or wet cases. As you know, produce clerks can be very creative and use lumber, plastic containers, foam, cardboard, etc to create a look of more inventory. Then, when it gets tired and ragged, they tear it all out and start over. With our system, we eliminate a lot of this wasted labor, and put it back into stock replenishment and rotation where there is payback.

On dry tables, the superior ventilation, especially with slatted Euro/tilt top tables disperses the ethylene gas emanating from the produce, and extends shelf life.

California Trays® have been designed and conceived by produce specialists across North America and Europe to meet specific business objectives. In short, they have been designed by people like you... our customers!
