Waxed Papers

Waxed Papers are available in two grades of white (a high opacity and a low opacity), and one of brown. The white low opacity waxed paper is also available in a medium weight base paper (45gsm) and a heavier weight base paper (60gsm) if required. Please call for more information.

The white high opacity waxed paper is a good general food wrapper suitable for wrapping charcuterie items, sandwiches and baguettes. This particular grade of waxed paper does not have any moisture barrier properties so would not be suitable for wrapping fresh meat, fresh fish and other foods with a high moisture content. It does have some grease barrier properties so would be good for wrapping low grease items like sandwiches, cooked meats and some cheeses. This product is available plain or printed.

The white low opacity waxed paper has the same properties as the high opacity, however it is semi-transparent therefore the wrapped food item will be partially visible through the paper. It is also available in two base papers, a 45gsm or a 60gsm. This product is available plain or printed.

The brown waxed paper is becoming increasingly popular as an alternative to white waxed paper mainly due to its ‘natural’ brown appearance. It is a good general food wrapper suitable for wrapping charcuterie items, sandwiches and baguettes. This particular grade of waxed paper does not have any moisture barrier properties so would not be suitable for wrapping fresh meat, fish and other foods with a high moisture content. Its overall performance is slightly different to the two grades of white waxed paper due to a slightly heavier wax coating which gives a better grease barrier. The brown waxed paper is good for wrapping low grease items and some cheeses. This product is available plain or printed.
