Colorful steak paper can also help meat, poultry and seafood stand out in grocery, butcher or deli display cases. The right color of food service paper can make a great impact on the presentation of fresh fish or Prime Angus steak in your butcher case. Not only do the various colors look nice, they actually were created for specific uses.

Here are some of the most common colors of steak paper and what they are used for:
  • Pink is typically used for pork, poultry and fish. Pink steak paper complements the hue of the meat and also preserves freshness.
  • Black is used to display higher quality beef such as angus. Black makes a sophisticated impact and conveys the “prime” quality of high-grade steaks.
  • Green offers a nice contrast against the bright color of steak and other cuts of beef. The bold shade of green never varies from the specific color that has been used for years.
  • Peach helps make the pink tint of pork, poultry, fish look even whiter, while helping preserve freshness.
