Zanders’ Zanbarrier OGR

Flexible oil and grease resistant paper

Zanders has launched the new oil and grease resistant food contact paper Zanbarrier OGR

Zanders, a globally active German specialist for innovative labelling and packaging solutions with headquarters in Bergisch Gladbach, has launched a new oil- and grease-resistant (OGR) food contact paper Zanbarrier OGR. In the future, Zanbarrier will also be available in other barrier variations, rounding off the range of flexible packaging paper.

Zanders has developed the flexible food contact paper Zanbarrier OGR specially for products containing fat, primarily in the food domain, and will be presenting it for the first time at the FachPack 2016 trade fair. Zanbarrier OGR is uncoated, resistant to oil and grease and moisture-proof. It is suitable for fast food packaging such as kebab or French fry wrappers, for butter wrapping, as release paper for fatty and moist food products or as lamination on pizza and bakery boxes, for example.

In addition to the OGR variant, Zanders is working on further barriers, including those dedicated for use with mineral oils, water and steam, or as aroma protection. “Our decades of experience in the use of high-performance technologies for surface treatments has enabled us to test and implement all different kinds of barriers”, explains Jakob Jonsson, Sales Director at Zanders. “We can provide our customers with flexible and targeted solutions for their individual needs. With our high-performance barrier papers, we offer an environmentally friendly alternative to plastic packaging.”

With its barrier papers, Zanders rounds off the product range of flexible packaging paper which also includes the lightly waterproof, machine-smoothed natural paper Zankraft MF in matte, silk and gloss versions as well as the Zanflex one-side coated qualities with a shiny surface. As fresh fibre papers, all packaging papers stand out due to their high level of purity and safety, thus making them ideally suited for the packaging of food such as cereals, sugar, flour, baking and confectionery goods, as well as soup packets or individually wrapped tea bags.

Furthermore, they can be successfully deployed as packaging for pet food or tobacco goods, as gift wrapping paper, for shopping bags or for laminations. In common with the entire product portfolio, all flexible packaging papers from Zanders are sustainably produced and are FSC-certified. They are also recyclable and compostable.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
