Business strategy

Our business strategy sets out how we'll be successful, in the context of the trends that are driving change for our customers and for us.

We are the global leader in two areas: the food on-the-go packaging market and the pre-packed food packaging market in emerging markets. 

At Huhtamaki we want to grow together with our customers. Our purpose is to help great products reach more people, more easily.  

Global megatrends have an impact on our and our customers’ business.  We work on addressing the opportunities created by the megatrends, so that our packaging products help our customers to enter new markets and sectors.

We're always looking for ways to excel with our customers:

  • Where we can usefully share our packaging knowledge with our customers
  • How our team can support our customers globally and locally
  • Where we can best invest to support our customers' future growth
