Sustainable foodservice packaging provider Eco-Products has launched a new compostable wrap for swaddling sandwiches, snacks and more.

According to the firm, the wrap is made up of wax paper, which meets ASTM D6868 standards, and has been certified compostable in commercial facilities by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI).

It can be used as a basket lining, food wrap, scale, or pick-up sheet by foodservice companies that provide takeout and delivery.

Jointly developed with Eco-Products’ parent company Novolex, the wrap is made from renewable resources and works well with both hot and cold snacks and sandwiches.

Eco-Products said that the wrap is grease and moisture resistant and also includes a print that features Eco-Products and BPI logos.

Eco-Products marketing director Nicole Tariku said: “These wraps are both stylish and functional, making them ideal for foodservice providers offering carryout and delivery.

“They also are sustainable, simplifying cleanup because both the wrap and any leftover food can be tossed into the compost bin.”

The new sandwich wrap will be featured at the Novolex booth at the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago from 21-24 May.

Novolex chief technology officer Adrianne Tipton said: “Creating this new wrap demonstrates our commitment to developing compostable products across the Novolex line.

“We’re seeing increased demand for more sustainable products, so we want to provide as many options as possible.”

In November 2021, Eco-Products announced the addition of seven new items to its Vanguard lineup for restaurants, supermarkets, convenience stores and snack bars seeking environmentally preferable options.

Eco-Products is a provider of plates, cups, utensils, and containers manufactured from renewable or post-consumer recycled resources.

It also works with the customers to improve composting and recycling, and collaborates with the industry to manage waste.
