At BillerudKorsnäs we want to offer alternatives to single-use plastic packaging that risks ending up as hazardous litter in our environment. Alternatives like Basix Repel Pure – the 100% natural grease-repellent paper for bags and wraps. Now bakery and quick service restaurant brands can offer their customers food in packaging without fluoropolymer-based grease barriers.
Brands and consumers alike are looking for more sustainable packaging and are acutely aware of the negative impact on nature from chemicals and plastic. One such compound is fluoropolymers – PFAS – commonly used to create grease resistance in food packaging like hamburger wraps and bags for French fries.
We are pleased to introduce a sustainable alternative: Basix Repel Pure. A plant-based barrier on 100% primary fibres makes Basix Repel Pure a totally clean and natural alternative to fluoropolymer-based barriers. It is FSC and PEFC certified, has excellent printability and oil hold out, proving that you don’t have to compromise with quality when selecting a sustainable material. Simply put, Basix Repel Pure makes it possible to create packaging for bakery and quick service restaurant brands that is loved by both nature and consumers.
And for us together to challenge conventional packaging for a sustainable future.
