South Portland, Maine, USA 10 July 2012 -- Twin Rivers Paper Company, a leader in lightweight specialty packaging label and publishing papers, has strengthened its commitment to sustainable packaging with the release of Acadia Natural, a compostable and recyclable paper made from unbleached pulp. This product design offers a natural substrate for packaging applications such as fast-food sandwich wraps, french fry and carry-out bags, and basket liners.
FDA-compliant for direct and indirect food contact, Acadia Natural offers the optimal solution for Quick Serve Restaurant (QSR), food service, and retail food applications, where high performance and sustainability are essential. For oil and grease resistance, Acadia Naturalis available in an Acadia Natural OGR version. Both products bring excellent printability, runnability and convertability to packaging applications.
Acadia Natural answers the growing demand for natural alternatives for packaging papers and represents an ideal choice for companies looking to have their packaging reflect their own sustainability initiatives,” says Dave Deger, Director of Business Development and Marketing.
