Making a difference where it matters most: addressing the urgent need for personal protective equipment (PPE) by frontline workers on the COVID-19 pandemic
The global outbreak of the COVID-19 crisis has led to a critical need for personal protective equipment (PPE). Huhtamaki partnered with Bloc Blinds, a blind manufacturing company, to produce face shields in answer to that demand.
There are times in history when sudden events—from natural disasters and economic collapse to wars and famines—lead to paradigm shifts that would have been difficult to fathom beforehand. The COVID-19 crisis is the latest trigger.
Safeguarding our employees’ health and safety and our business operations through the global COVID-19 Crisis
Given the exceptional circumstances we are facing with the COVID-19 pandemic around the world, Huhtamaki has put in place strong measures to prevent the spread of the virus, safeguard our operations and keep our employees safe and healthy.
Huhtamaki Compacto vending cups are a new range of paper cups designed and optimized for vending machines. They are made with paper from 100% PEFC certified sustainably managed forests and have been designed with vending machine operators in mind.
We use paper and cardboard products every day. To ensure that forests renew and grow, it is important that they are sustainably maintained. Our goal is to use 100% of the wood fiber from recycled or certified sustainable sources.
The OPRL has announced today that paper cups will have their own specialist recycling label in the UK to support the wide range of paper cup recycling programs including in store and on-street, office, workplace and industry collections.
We proudly bear the name of our founder, Mr. Heikki Huhtamäki. Young Heikki established Huhtamäki Industries in 1920 in Kokkola, Finland. Ever since then, we've followed his spirit of adventure in exploring new opportunities across the world.
