In these historical times when food delivery and in particular home delivery of lunches and dinners is becoming a more ingrained habit, making the service more sustainable in terms of its packaging, without compromising the quality of the food is of fundamental importance.
The role of cardboard and paper in food delivery.
The development of the food delivery sector has brought about an increase in the production of food containers. Today it is more important than ever that these containers are environmentally friendly yet still preserve the quality of the contents inside.
Today, the increasingly common requirements when researching raw materials comes down to their grease barrier properties, natural origins, sustainability and biodegradability.
Grease barrier properties in sustainable food packaging.
In many paper and cardboard applications the requirements are for oil and grease barrier properties. Different grades of paper and card each have their own set of unique characteristics.
At Garzanti Specialties we have been experts in the barrier properties of paper and cardboard since the days when C8 fluorocarbon resins were introduced. Today, together with our partner, Nouryon, we are confident about the latest innovations and excited to present you with a new portfolio solution, FINNFIX® BBP.
Carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) is engineered to provide a natural and sustainable barrier against oils and grease.
