Packaging we make

Consumers are increasingly interested in knowing that the products they purchase are sustainable throughout the value chain.

Packaging has an important role in protecting food throughout its value chain. We design our packaging to be effective and safe, and to protect the food product before consumption. Optimal packaging, which is fit for purpose in all stages of the food value chain, establishes a good base for a low environmental impact. To enhance this, we are constantly innovating and renewing our products, for example by taking new raw materials into use, light-weighting the packaging or making recyclability easier for consumers.

Product safety and quality are the most important factors of food packaging. Safety and quality requirements placed on packaging may relate, for example, to the choice of raw material, local food contact regulations or disposal of the packaging after use.

We take these requirements seriously all the way from new product development, including raw material selection, until the chosen disposal option after use. Our approach to improving product safety and quality is based on the systematic implementation of certified quality, product safety, environmental and wood origin chain of custody management systems.
