As the name would suggest, this type of paper was originally sold to butchers for the purpose of wrapping purchased meat and fish for customers. Today, butcher paper remains a must-have for any serious grocer, restaurant, deli, or specialty food store. Use it to wrap ribs, roasts, briskets and even poultry to protect your meat during transport, cooking or resting. Unlike foil, food grade butcher paper is easily used to cook as it allows the steam to escape but won't make the exterior of the meat soggy. A pink tinted or off-white colour simply denotes a natural base, whereas white butcher paper is bleached.
Other Uses for Butchers Paper
If you’re a professional packing company looking for quality butcher paper to wrap your items, look no further. Sometimes referred to as packing paper, it can protect fragile objects from breakage and scuff marks. It stays in place without tape because it takes on the shape of whatever you're wrapping. You can also use paper balls to minimise the movement of objects in the box by filling the gaps. Butcher paper is also commonly ordered by schools to use for arts & crafts projects. This versatile bulk butcher paper lends itself well to large colouring or painting projects and is strong enough to be hung on walls without the fear of it ripping or tearing.
