US speciality paper products company Expera Specialty Solutions has unveiled a broad line of SOAR sustainable food packaging and processing papers in an effort to bolster its sustainable product offerings.

The company noted that new Wax alternative papers can achieve multiple sustainability goals in a single product.

“Our Wax Alternative papers are manufactured without the addition of paraffin or other petroleum-based materials.”

Expera Speciality Solutions Sales and Marketing vice-president Robyn Buss said: “Our Wax Alternative papers are manufactured without the addition of paraffin or other petroleum-based materials, creating a more sustainable alternative to the traditionally used quick service restaurant packaging.

“These products maintain a high-level of performance and are stronger on a pound-for-pound basis, allowing for improved yield and decreased transportation costs.”

The company is focused on innovating its SOAR line of sustainable food papers to meet growing customer demand, including its exclusive line of Grease-Gard FluoroFree papers.

Buss added: “Increasingly, consumers are looking for a fluorochemical-free option, and they still need the product to meet FDA requirements for food contact and be cost-effective and eco-friendly.

“We are uniquely situated to provide that option, as Expera has been manufacturing grease-resistant papers since the 1930s, well before the creation of fluorochemistry.”

Grease-Gard FluoroFree papers are designed to meet a range of grease resistant needs. The papers offer basis weights, an array of finishes, and glueability and printability.

The company noted that the papers offered under the SOAR product portfolio are compostable and made from 100% natural virgin fibre and recycled content.
