Food Storage Paper & Bags (Bundle)
+ $ shipping surcharge
Fresher, better, longer.
Stave off the dreaded rotting of your perishables with a food storage bundle from Formaticum, who manufacture paper sheets and bags specifically made to keep your food fresher, longer.
The two-ply cheese paper allows your brie to breathe while maintaining optimal humidity, preventing the cheese from drying out and making the flavor last much longer. The paper has a smooth coating, similar to parchment or wax paper. The cheese bags are lined with the same material and simply fold to close. The food storage bags are made of a special antimicrobial paper that protects against contamination while regulating ethylene gas (the gas that ripens produce) and keeping your food at the proper moisture level. They’re also reusable and 100% recyclable!

Meet the Maker
Let's get this out of the way, because it was the first thing we asked, too: “formaticum” was first used by Roman Legionnaires to describe compressed curds of milk (essentially, cheese!). Back in present day, Mark Goldman was sampling cheese in Paris when he realized each type was wrapped differently, impacting the flavor. He set out to find the première cheese packaging manufacturers in France and has since dedicated his life to defending cheese's flavor. It's a tough job, but someone's gotta do it.View Full Profile
