The trend towards eating or drinking “on the go” is unbroken. The take-away and convenience dining boom continues and places high demands upon environmentally friendly cartonboard packaging. Particularly in the fast food and food service segment round forms or special folding are needed which place special demands on the flexibility and shapeability of the cartonboard. At the same time, the packaging must fulfil the strict specifications for direct contact with foodstuffs prescribed by food regulatory provisions.
Cartonboard solutions for fast food and food service must fulfil the following requirements:
- Protection against burning, spillage as well as taste and odour influences
- Grease barrier for protection against annoying grease spots and discolourations
- Good performance with converting and packaging facilities for efficient production
- Drawability to enable suitable versatile shaping
