Title: Replacing a corrugated carton with a multiwall paper bag for food wraps
Author: Heiler, Dianne
Abstract: The objective of this study was to determine the feasibility of replacing a corrugated container with a multiwall paper bag for the packaging of food wraps used in the "Quick - Serve" foodservice industry. The study was limited to one specific restaurant chain and for only one size of food wraps. Laboratory testing was used to compare the performance attributes of both package systems. This study will provide a model for quantifying package source reduction when comparing a rigid package design to a flexible one. The results show that, indeed, a multiwall paper bag is a feasible alternative to a corrugated container when packaging food wraps and that significant source reduction can be realized from this change. Immediate and significant cost savings will also be achieved if the alternate package system is used for this foodservice application.
