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.
At the FachPack trade fair that took place in Nuremberg, Germany, from September 27 to 29, Koehler Paper introduced NexPure® Wrap, a sustainable, lightweight packaging paper for fast-food products, to the public for the first time.
Burger and fast-food packaging with a high-quality barrier function uses natural raw materials
Back in 2019, Koehler Paper invested 300 million euros in flexible packaging paper with its new production line 8. Since then, the largest MG paper machine in the world has been producing flexible packaging paper with barrier coatings with a wide range of functions. These include, in particular, odor, grease, mineral oil, and even oxygen barriers. Koehler papers are ideally suited for use as packaging: The paper really delivers in terms of the primary purposes of packaging: to protect the contents and their surroundings as well as provide excellent processing properties.
The new paper, designed for burger and wrap packaging, has a grammage of 29.5 and uses natural raw materials for the barrier function. Koehler NexPure® Wrap features absolutely no fluorinated chemical coatings, yet works just as well as conventional paper. It exclusively uses pulp from certified sustainable forestry and controlled sources as its primary fiber. Moreover, Koehler NexPure® Wrap is an excellent complement to Koehler’s “Seal & Wrap” campaign, and its excellent grease barrier and modified water vapor barrier properties make it a fantastic alternative to solutions that are not fully recyclable, which are currently still in widespread use in fast-food system catering. Koehler NexPure® Wrap is primarily used in packaging for burgers, sandwiches, and wraps.
Fully recyclable paper for burgers and wraps underscores the system catering industry’s sustainability drive to satisfy consumers
The main advantage of Koehler NexPlus® barrier papers is that they are based on sustainable raw materials. They can be fully fed back into the recycling loop, possible for paper in many countries worldwide, and are also embraced by consumers. The focus here is on the reuse of high-quality paper fibers after a product has been used, entirely in keeping with the circular economy concept.
