Chapelton to distribute Grease Guard Food from Smurfit Kappa

Kent-based speciality paper and cartonboard supplier, Chapelton is to distribute Grease Guard folding carton board product from Smurfit Kappa, a unique special grease resistant grade.

Grease Guard folding carton board has been specifically designed for packaging that is in direct contact with all food types. It is also recyclable, biodegradable and compostable, and can be used as an alternative to virgin fibre board with PE lamination.

Being recyclable as a mono material, and as its production content originates from Forest Stewardship Council-certified sources, the FSC Chain of Custody is maintained with Grease Guard Food.

Due to its grease, moisture resistant qualities, Grease Guard Food is suitable for dry, moist and fatty food contact in both food and drink packaging, and doesn’t contain any PFC’s and is water-based.

Grease Guard Food is made from recycled material, with two levels of grease resistance content. One is for fast food packaging purposes, the other, Grease Guard High, is where greater barriers are needed such as Pet Foods.

Produced at Smurfit Kappa’s Hoya mill in Germany, Grease Guard is available in weight range from 300gsm to 500gsm, and is ideal for food packaging applications, the grade is available full sized for freezer and chiller use, suitable for fatty foods as well as consumer goods, industrial packaging and pharmaceutical packaging.

Smurfit Kappa’s innovative migration barrier, MB 12, can be added to the Grease Guard range for increased barriers to organic and sensory migrants

Chapelton Board Business Development Director, Neil Skelton, says: “We are excited to have landed the exclusive distribution for this unique product, which again will fit in perfectly with our range of packaging products that we handle.”

With a 28-year trading history and operating from a facility in Aylesford, Kent, Chapelton is a privately-owned company with turnover of around £11m. Chapelton employs a team of experienced personnel to deal with its international manufacturing clients, and handle the array of cartonboard, paper and speciality products that it stocks.
