McDonald’s wraps its hamburgers throughout Europe using innovative paper from Austria

In order to ensure that the burger maintains its consistency from the time it is made until the time is eaten, it should not stick to the packaging nor begin to sweat. For this reason, the paper is coated, usually with wax. After three years of development work, the Delfort Group succeeded in replacing the way with the more environmentally compatible soya. The new type of paper is thus recyclable and also compostable, and decomposes after three weeks. In contrast, conventional types of wrapping still exist after a hundred years. Thanks to the replacement of wax by soya, McDonalds is also able to substitute for 1.1 million liters of crude oil. 

The new business with McDonalds represents an enormous impetus for the production facility in Austria. The company plans to invest EUR 40 million to expand its production capacities in the coming years.

The family-owned company generates annual revenue of EUR 744 million, employing 2,300 people around the world, including 330 employees in Traun, Austria. At the beginning of the year the paper manufacturer acquired the American company Mundet, with sites in Virginia and Tennessee as well as in Mexico.
