Press release date: May 18, 2016

Napkin Designed to Improve Patron Dining Experience Through Superior Quality While Reducing Waste

ATLANTA -- GP PRO, a division of Georgia-Pacific, and a leading provider of integrated restroom and food service solutions for commercial facilities, today announced the launch of a new Dixie Ultra® Interfold 2-Ply Napkin. The new napkin is specifically designed to improve the food service patron experience through superior product quality, while helping to minimize waste.

Food service providers will be able to improve operational efficiency with this latest extension of the trusted Dixie brand. The Dixie Ultra® Interfold 2-Ply Napkin is a soft, large, strong and absorbent napkin for a cost comparable to a 1-Ply napkin. Additionally, the new napkin is part of a system which includes one-at-a-time style dispensers, which reduce waste and are easy to fill and maintain.

"Dixie Ultra® Interfold 2-Ply Napkin offers food service providers a dependable product so they can provide customers with the best service possible," said Nate Medina, napkin category director, GP PRO. "Today, patrons are demanding a higher quality dining experience from trendy ingredients to branded condiments, so it is important that providers send a cohesive, quality message to patrons at every dining touch point."

To also meet the demand for sustainable products, Dixie Ultra® Interfold 2-Ply Napkin is the latest addition to GP PRO's EcoSmart™ products. Made from 100 percent recycled fiber, the napkin earned the Green Seal™ of approval.

Designed specifically with food service operators and the patrons they serve in mind, the dispensers also feature space for menu marketing to support what really matters: driving sales through repeat customer visits.

Dixie Ultra® Interfold 2-Ply Napkin will be available for purchase in August or for trial May 21-24 at The NRA Show in Chicago. For more information, visit gppro.com/foodservice.
