All of these products can be safely packaged with polystyrene and by doing so spoilage of foods is prevented. Especially when using dry ice to keep food frozen or cold during transportation. Polystyrene has long been recognized as a versatile and cost-effective solution for rigid packaging of food especially when going fishing, camping, hunting or transporting food for events.
