Wafer paper, also known as edible paper, comes in different shapes and sizes. It’s made of vegetable potato starch, oil and water and the best part of it all: it’s healthy, organic and cost effective. And while you may know wafer paper from under your coconut macaroon, this edible paper is suitable for many more applications. And we will tell you all about it.


1. Wafer paper rolls to prevent stickiness

Up to 50 million fruit-, nut- and cereal bars per year slide off the production lines at Beier Waffeln in Germany. And all of these bars are wrapped with wafer paper on a roll from Primus. To prevent them from sticking to the belt, but also to avoid sticky fingers when eating the bars.


“We have been working with Primus’ wafer paper for over 10 years now. Because of the flexibility, the wafer paper is easy to use and it allows us to produce nice, clean bars. While we started using wafer paper sheets, we switched to roll wafers as the result is much better. And also our customers are very satisfied,” says Markus Beier, owner of Beier Waffeln. Beier Waffeln is one of the 25 industrial food production plants in Europe that work with wafer paper on a roll. Experiencing the high flexibility and stable quality, for significantly better usability.


2. Wafer paper labels for immediate recognition

Starting off as a small baker’s shop in the 1970s, bakery De Trog has now grown to a modern artisanal bakery with more than 120 people. They only use the best organic raw materials for their breads, which they require for their edible branding as well. Primus’ wafer paper labels are made solely with water, oil and potato starch and are therefore the perfect match when it comes to (organically) bringing their brand to the table. With the wafer paper labels from Primus, De Trog gives their delicious breads a personal touch, ensuring immediate recognition among customers. Certainly in the competitive bread market, this gives De Trog on edge to stay successful.
