The invention of cling film food wrap has revolutionized the food industry. Whether the wrap is used at home, in a food catering application, or in an industrial application, it’s made food handling faster, easier, and more hygienic. It’s also easier for the customers to determine the freshness and quality of the wrapped food.

Easy and Hygienic

The ease is in the ability to handle food faster and more often. In modern food handling operations, speed is of the essence. The food may have to be transported from the place it’s prepared to the place it will be bought or distributed. Cling film provides a rugged barrier that surrounds the food, yet, because it’s transparent, it provides easy identification of the food for easy sorting and distribution.

The food’s hygienic qualities result from the material the wrap is made from. The first cling film was invented in the US as a new use for a substance composed of polyvinylidene chloride (PVDC) and developed under the name Saran. The term Saran wrap is still used as a generic term for cling wrap by many Americans. The substance was first invented as a protective spray coating applied to fighter planes before being seen as suitable for car upholstery and even a waterproof lining for soldier’s boots.

Modern Cling Wrap

These days, cling film food wrap is created from special food-grade polymers of Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) and Polyethylene (PE). These two materials are combined with a material called Hexamoll® DINCH from BASF. The formula enhances the durability of a popular brand of food wrap that’s widely used in home, catering and industrial uses. The material is called M Wrap® from a company called MMP Corporation The wrap uses premium grade, all virgin materials in the three applications the product is designed for.

The wrap is sold all over the world. It’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved in the US and also approved by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).

Three Applications

MMP Corporation produces M Wrap® in packaging and sizes to suit the three most common applications for cling wrap products. Smaller rolls enclosed in a cardboard carton with a perforated edge for cutting the wrap to size are handy for the home kitchen.

M Wrap® is also available in large, heavy-duty rolls for manufacturers and retail chains that demand a cling wrap with high-stretch and high-cling capabilities. MMP Corporation also offers an electric hand packer that fits M Wrap® rolls of up to 45 cm in width and speeds up the food wrapping process.
