Gorham Paper and Tissue has appointed German company Commercial Paper Agents (CPA) as its exclusive distribution partner in Europe for its specialty packaging products.
Gorham sales and marketing vice president Brian McAlary said, "The response to our packaging papers domestically has been phenomenal. With the guidance of CPA, we anticipate the same reception in Europe."
CPA will target European packaging converters and end users and will focus on selling Optix line of specialty papers for food packaging engineered with grease resistance, wet strength as well as other functional properties.
Available in bleached and natural options in 30 – 90 g/m2 with grease resistance and wet strength, Optix is said to be suitable for a range of Quick Serve Restaurant (QSR) and other food packaging including wraps, pouches, bags and liners.
Gorham also makes various bases used for waxing, coatings and laminations, all of which are FDA compliant for direct and indirect food contact and meet ISEGA and BRC/IoP standards.
