Acknowledging the growing consumer concern regarding safe food packaging and its impact on the environment, the co. introduces a vegetable parchment made of renewable cellulose fibers. The grease-barrier material, with no chemical additives or loose fibers, is safe for direct-food contact, the co. says, and has natural release properties, shows heat-resistance up to 450 deg F and is a robust, natural barrier that's also biodegradable. The paper is also useful in core and tube structures, the co. adds.
