NEW Krewrap

The first household plastic wrap in Japan

Krewrap was the first household-use plastic wrap introduced in Japan. Since its launch in 1960, use of Krewrap has spread as refrigerators and microwaves have became essential household items. In 1989, the packaging was renewed and NEW Krewrap was introduced. Following our basic product concept of offering "the most enjoyable plastic wrap," we have continued to make improvements to enhance customer satisfaction.

  • Launched in 1960 as the first household plastic wrap in Japan

Plant-derived plastic cutter is easy-to-use and gentle to hands and fingers

V-shaped cutter allows for a quick, clean cut from the middle.
