Paper's versatility, sustainability, and ability to enhance the visual appeal and functionality of food packaging make it a widely used material in the food industry.

Kraft Paper

Brown Kraft Paper

The most common type of kraft paper, characterized by its natural, unbleached brown colour. It's known for its strength, durability, and grease/oil resistance, making it suitable for packaging applications.

White Kraft Paper

White kraft paper is produced by bleaching the natural brown kraft paper to achieve a lighter, more uniform colour. It's often used for higher-end packaging, printing, and writing applications where a cleaner, brighter appearance is desired.

Coated Kraft Paper

Kraft paper can be coated with various materials, such as polyethylene (PE), wax, or other polymers, to enhance its barrier properties. Coated kraft paper provides improved resistance to grease, oil, moisture, and other environmental factors, making it suitable for food packaging and industrial applications.

Laminated Kraft Paper

It's can be laminated with other materials, such as aluminum foil or plastic films, to create a multi-layered structure. Laminated kraft paper offers enhanced barrier properties, strength, and versatility, making it useful for specialized packaging needs.

Recycled Kraft Paper

This type of kraft paper is made from recycled materials, contributing to the sustainability of the product. Recycled kraft paper maintains many of the desirable properties of virgin kraft paper, making it a viable option for various applications.

Specialty Kraft Papers

There are also specialized kraft paper types, such as wet-strength kraft paper, that are designed for specific applications, like packaging for wet or moist products.

These specialized kraft papers are engineered to meet the unique requirements of certain industries or product categories.

Wax Paper

Paraffin Wax Paper

This is the most common type of wax paper, which is coated with a thin layer of paraffin wax. Paraffin wax paper provides a good moisture and grease barrier, making it suitable for wrapping and packaging foods like cheese, baked goods, and produce.

Vegetable Wax Paper

Vegetable wax paper is coated with wax derived from plant-based sources, such as soy, carnauba, or beeswax.

This type of wax paper is often preferred for its more natural and environmentally friendly profile compared to paraffin wax.

Silicone Wax Paper

Silicone wax paper is coated with a silicone-based wax, which provides a higher heat resistance and improved non-stick properties.

This type of wax paper is commonly used for baking applications, such as lining baking sheets or wrapping dough.

Coated Wax Paper

Wax paper can be coated with additional materials, such as polyethylene (PE) or polypropylene (PP), to enhance its barrier properties and durability.

Coated wax paper offers improved resistance to moisture, grease, and tearing, making it suitable for a wider range of food packaging and industrial applications.

Parchment Paper

Unbleached Parchment Paper

It is made from natural cellulose fibres and coated or treated to provide the desired heat-resistant and non-stick properties. It has a natural, off-white or cream colour.

Bleached Parchment Paper

Bleached parchment paper undergoes a bleaching process to achieve a whiter and brighter appearance. The bleaching process does not affect the heat resistance or non-stick properties of the paper. It is often preferred for applications where a cleaner, more uniform appearance is desired, such as in baking and food presentation.

Silicone-Coated Parchment Paper

This type of parchment paper is coated with a thin layer of silicone, which enhances the non-stick and heat-resistant properties. Silicone-coated parchment paper is particularly useful for high-temperature baking, as it can withstand temperatures up to 500°F (260°C) or higher.

Wet Strength Paper

Wet strength paper is commonly used in food packaging applications due to its ability to maintain integrity and structural properties when exposed to moisture, grease, and other food-related stresses.

Wine Bottle Sleeves and Wraps

Some wine packaging utilizes wet strength paper for the outer sleeves or wraps that surround individual wine bottles or multi-packs. These wet strength paper wraps provide protection against moisture, grease, and scuffing, helping to maintain the appearance and integrity of the wine packaging.The wet strength properties ensure the paper wraps can withstand handling and exposure to condensation or spills without compromising the packaging.

Baked Goods Packaging

Wet strength paper is utilized in the packaging of various baked goods, including cakes, pies, and pastries. The moisture resistance of the paper helps prevent the baked goods from becoming soggy or losing their texture when packaged.

Some wet strength papers may also be designed with non-stick properties to facilitate easy removal of the baked items from the packaging.

Cheese Packaging

It's commonly used to wrap and package various types of cheese, such as blocks, slices, and shredded cheese. The moisture and grease resistance of the paper helps maintain the cheese's quality and prevent leakage during storage and transportation.

Some wet strength papers may also be designed with added features like permeability to allow for controlled moisture exchange, which can benefit certain cheese varieties.

Frozen Food Packaging

It's used to wrap and package frozen foods, such as meat, poultry, and seafood.

The paper's resistance to moisture and grease helps maintain the quality and prevent freezer burn during storage and transportation.
