Clip has launched its latest patented catering innovation, the CLICK tray, designed to help airlines meet new challenges as pressure increases on sustainability and hygiene.
The CLICK tray works as a compact box in the trolley. It occupies one third of the volume of a full-size ATLAS tray and claims to safely protect the food it contains without using polluting disposable lids.
When pulled out of the trolley by the crew, the CLICK tray folds open into a two thirds-size ATLAS tray in one gesture. The patented design aims to prevent any spillage or collapse of the tray as it clicks securely into position. The crew can then place the casserole and bread on the tray and serve the passenger.
“After almost one and half years of COVID global shut down, our team has been busy creating new innovations,” says Cindy Lam, director Clip Ltd. “We are very proud of the work we have created; together with our raw materials and manufacturing partners to realise this product.
“We are confident that our CLICK tray will be beneficial to the aviation industry moving forward, with sustainability and hygiene foremost in our minds, post-COVID.”
With galleys getting smaller on both wide and narrow body aircrafts, the new concept maximizes efficient use of space and helps the crew with easy handling and delivery.
The tray is 100% reusable and does away with disposable elements; it provides a convenient uncluttered experience with its non-slip detail for a safe grip on the tray table. When collecting the trays, the crew folds the tray back in one simple gesture into a compact easy-to-store box.
The box is washable and can be reused up to 100 times. Clip has proposed the patented design to be made from Re-Pet or 100% plant-based renewable material that is also 100% compostable at the end of life of the object.
