Koehler Paper, part of the Koehler Group, is adding another product for use in the fast-food market to its flexible packaging paper portfolio.
Consumer demand for sustainable products and packaging has been evident in the fast-food sector for some time now, which is why system catering is also increasingly looking for solutions in this field. Back in October, Koehler launched Koehler NexPure Wrap, a paper designed for burger packaging with extremely low grammage, onto the fast-food market. Now, with Koehler NexPure OGR, the company is bringing an oil- and grease-resistant sustainable paper onto the market, which will be suitable for packaging foods such as fries, sandwiches, wraps and burritos.
With the latest development—Koehler NexPure OGR—Koehler Paper, a leading provider of papers with a disruptive barrier function for packaging solutions, is adding another sustainable solution to its portfolio for the fast-food market. The product is entirely free from fluorochemicals and is therefore a sustainable, environmentally friendly alternative to the packaging paper currently used in the fast-food sector. The new paper, designed for packaging foods such as fries, has a grammage of 38 grams per square meter (gsm) and uses natural raw materials for the barrier function.
Christoph Wachter, Director of the Flexible Packaging Paper division at Koehler Paper, says: “With this new development, we have produced sustainable fast-food packaging that is entirely free from fluorinated chemical coatings while offering the same properties as those that do. This ensures that the paper is fully recyclable.”
