Now you can buy the Weinie-Pak in the United States.
Vista International Packaging LLC of Kenosha, Wis., is doing limited U.S. distribution of the cellulose casings made by ViskoTeepak, based in Mariehamm, Finland. ViskoTeepak also has taken a minority ownership position in Vista.
Vista plans a modest first-year sale of 200 million meters of the Weinie-Pak in 2013. The two companies have a long-standing strategic partnership.
According to ViskoTeepak's website, the non-edible casing can be used with manual stuffers or high-speed automatic machines. A Rapid Peel feature gives an inner coating, called Rapid Peel, to make it easy to peel off the Weinie-Pak after cooking.
