Made by Bagcraft, the revolutionary new packaging keeps food tasting fresh as it’s wrapped, frozen, reheated and held under heat at the point of sale
HARTSVILLE, S.C. — April 12, 2023 — Novolex®, a leader in packaging choice, innovation and sustainability, is introducing Power Prep™ wrap for grab-and-go hot sandwiches and other freshly made foods.
Manufactured by Novolex brand Bagcraft®, the new wrap is laminated and insulated to keep food tasting fresh as it moves from the freezer to thawing and re-heating, and while it’s held under heat at the point of sale. This allows customers to enjoy a delicious hot sandwich that was made and wrapped off site.
Power Prep wrap is ideal for convenience stores, supermarkets and other foodservice operators, catering to the growing demand for high-quality, freshly made offerings.
“When a national convenience store needed a new flexible packaging option for grab-and-go hot sandwiches, our innovation team developed a unique four-layer structure specifically designed to control moisture and heat,” said Tim Coulson, Director of Technology, Paper at Novolex. “Our new Power Prep wrap is a true gamechanger, a unique solution that revolutionizes the way hot foods can be made, sold and enjoyed.”
As convenience stores and other food operators invest in central kitchens to provide more prepared grab-and-go food options, maintaining consistent quality and food integrity is critical. The Power Prep wrap protects food and performs across multiple temperature requirements.
Power Prep wrap uses non-fluorinated oil-and-grease-resistant paper that is laminated to a liner using a honeycomb pattern that creates an insulated layer. Among the many features of the multilayered wrap:
- The lamination is designed with unique anti-curling capabilities to allow flat sheeting, saving time and increasing efficiency because foods can be quickly wrapped and frozen at scale.
- It is more puncture-resistant than foil or foil/paper structure, providing an alternative to other packaging options.
- The wrap can be custom printed to include branding and promotional messages.
Power Prep wrap is available as cut sheets in different sizes and can also be purchased as a roll.
Bagcraft food packaging products serve a wide range of foodservice, restaurant, supermarket, convenience store and bakery applications. Power Prep wrap is just the latest addition to the range of innovative packaging solutions from Novolex.
