Pleated packaging for sandwiches and finger-food bags

The PleatPak and Magic Bag from GreenDustries are easy to carry, open and use. They resist mess during consumption, "survive the drive" and keep foods warm. Environmentally friendly, they feature attractive designs and are made using a special 100% recycled paper from Papeterie de Raon that exhibits superior food contact stability.

A unique pleated wrap design provides self-enclosed, folded pleats that hug and surround the food and keeps all ingredients together while allowing hands to stay clean during consumption. Lateral pleats expand to create a barrier around the food. PleatPaks are being used by several sports stadiums for burgers and other sandwiches. The Magic Bag is a standup structure that spreads out to create a pouch for items like French fries. The packages also use less material, according to GreenDustries, which has given the company support from several environmental groups.
