Twin Rivers Paper Co., South Portland, Maine, USA, a producer of lightweight specialty packaging, label, and publishing papers, with operations in Maine and New Brunswick, N.S., Canada, reports that it is answering the market need for more environmentally-responsible packaging by expanding its Acadia® Natural portfolio to include basis weight offerings as low as 18 lb and up to 50 lb. Acadia Natural, a fully recyclable and compostable packaging paper, is made from unbleached pulp and offers an environmentally-friendly alternative for packaging applications such as bread bags, carry-out bags, fast-food sandwich wraps, french fry bags, and basket liners.

"The demand for sustainable packaging is growing and Twin Rivers is well-positioned to meet this demand with both our portfolio and our ability to co-develop products tailored to the unique needs of the packaging market. By broadening our product offering, we are able to support lightweight initiatives as well as serve a broader set of end-use applications," says Dave Deger, director of Business Development and Marketing.

Twin Rives points out that "Acadia Natural is an ideal solution for food service, retail-food applications, and quick serve restaurants. It offers excellent runnability, printability, sustainability, and FDA-compliance, while available in both a standard and an oil and grease-resistant option up to kit 7."
