The high-quality fiber used in our paper cups can be recycled and used up to seven times before being composted or used to generate electricity. We lead and participate in several initiatives around the world to increase the recycling of paper cups.
According to a life cycle analysis co-commissioned by Huhtamaki, paper cups often have the lowest carbon footprint, and recycling lowers it further by 54%. The LCA was carried out in 2018-2019 by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd.
Huhtamaki Fresh is both oven and microwave safe alternative to black plastic trays. It is a fiber-based, natural solution to ready meal packaging. A growing number of Fresh trays is reaching the UK market in May.
Huhtamaki’s Foodservice manufacturing unit in Hämeenlinna, Finland, will move to new premises in 2019. The new unit is designed to be highly energy-efficient and will enable very efficient manufacturing operations as well as top work safety.
