Today’s consumers want grocerant niche Ready-2-Eat and Heat-N-Eat food that travels.  Here is an example of one company that can help you edify the ‘halo’ of better for you when it comes to food packaging. GreenDustries Corporation announced the results of comprehensive testing that confirms the absence of PFAS chemicals in their packaging products, the PleatPak and Magic Bag. In a search for 28 different PFAS chemicals, Merit Laboratories tested for each which resulted in no detection of such “forever chemicals.”

So, it was the latest set of data that strengthened the PleatPak and the Magic Bag’s position as a global leader in chemical-free, safe and green packaging for QSR burgers, sandwiches and finger foods.

Many of these fast-food companies note that they plan to phase out those toxic chemicals by the end of 2025. As the awareness of the hazardous PFAS chemicals is growing, GreenDustries continues to solidify its relationship with clients around the world and the PleatPak continue providing the most loved, convenient, portable and Green packaging product to happy customers worldwide.

Thomas Buchberg, CEO of GreenDustries Corporation, the manufacturer of PleatPak, stated, “The PleatPak is a top-end quality burger and sandwich package from every measurable category. This is proven with clients expressing their love for the coolest and safe burger wrap in the market,”.
