July 6, 2017 - Expera has continued to customize its line of food packaging and processing papers with its newly launched brand Prepera™ Food Processing Papers.

According to Expera, Prepera papers keep individual food slices neatly separate and wrapped, while easily releasing from products that have been vacuum packaged, frozen, or thawed. Expera produces layout sheets for raw and pre-cooked applications as well as paper-based solutions designed to address a variety of needs in today's refrigerated and frozen food categories.

“Prepera papers are used in a wide variety of applications and they have the flexibility necessary for unique and demanding applications,” said Robyn Buss, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Expera. “Whether it's bacon layout, or an interleave application for cheese or meat, these papers are safe, sustainable, and provide the food release properties necessary for all types of performance.”

The new line of Prepera papers are designed to resist oil, grease, and water and are available in low to high wet-strength varieties.

“Prepera papers are custom-designed in multiple color options and we have monthly runs,” explained Buss. “These are strong papers that prevent fluids from passing through, achieving a high-level of performance for multiple end-use applications.”

Expera's Prepera papers can be produced with bleached, natural, blended and post-consumer waste recycled options and can carry Chain of Custody certification through FSC, SFI or PEFC certification schemes.
