HELSINKI, 18-Jul-2019 — /EuropaWire/ — The quick service restaurant industry can now make a use of a new fiber-based solution that will help them meet the demanding sustainability needs of the food market. It is Ahlstrom-Munksjö‘s newly launched ParaFree™ Wax Alternative Papers, which is a new generation of eco-friendly food packaging papers.
Since Ahlstrom-Munksjö is a leading global supplier of specialty paper products, it dedicates vast resources to continuously pursue sustainability initiatives. The launch of the ParaFree™ Wax Alternative Papers is yet another demonstration of the company’s commitment to creating eco-friendly products and solutions. Ahlstrom-Munksjö’s ParaFree™ papers are reducing the dependency on petroleum-based ingredients as they are paraffin wax free. The positive environmental impact on the supply chain footprint is achieved with the reduction of the wax, which lowers the basis weight of the end-use product and decreases the overall material use.
Recyclability and compostability are in the core of those products, which are primarily used in the food packaging and fast food industries.
Commenting on the new ParaFree™ papers, Robyn Buss, Vice President Sales and Marketing, North America Specialty Solutions, said:
“Ahlstrom-Munksjö’s ParaFree™ Wax Alternative Papers provide significant performance and sustainability advantages. ParaFree™ Papers provide specially formulated solutions to our customers that make the end product easy on the environment and hardworking in their applications, enabling them to maintain high-level product performance while complying with emerging food safety regulations.”
Furthermore, water repellency and resistance to many oils and condiments are some of the features of the new ParaFree™ Wax Alternative Papers offer. The paraffin wax free papers are printable on both sides and their higher brightness and opacity as compared to traditional wax papers strengthens the visibility of the consumer’s brand image and message.
