Koehler Paper is presenting Koehler NexPure® Wrap, a sustainable, lightweight packaging paper for fast-food products, to the public for the first time at the FachPack trade fair in Nuremberg, Germany, from September 27 to 29.
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 is a sustainable fast-food packaging that is entirely free from fluorinated chemical coatings while offering the same properties. The product exclusively uses pulp from certified sustainable forestry and controlled sources as its primary fiber. Koehler NexPure® Wrap is the perfect addition to Koehler’s ‘Seal & Wrap’ campaign and, with its excellent grease barrier and adapted water vapor barrier, it is 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.
The main advantage of Koehler NexPlus® barrier paper 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.
