Safe, strong and effective food packaging

Because fresh fibres of our paperboards are fully traceable, naturally pure, and free from unknown chemical substances our paperboards are safe for direct and indirect food contact applications – meaning food will taste exactly like it's meant to.

Ensured product safety

In our paperboards we only use pulp made of naturally pure fresh fibres produced at Metsä Group mills. Our pulp contains only safe chemicals and additives that comply with all applicable regulations. By going beyond what is required by regulatory bodies and focusing on the safety of our materials, we aim to exceed consumer expectations.

Sustainable food packaging

Food packaging should not only keep products fresh and safe to eat, but it should also be easily recyclable. But recycling is not always possible – the paperboard may be contaminated due to its contents and therefore cannot be recycled. In such a situation compostability is the next best alternative. All Metsä Board’s paperboards, excluding PE coated grades, hold industrial compostability certificates complying with DIN EN 13432 and ASTM D6400 standards.

Thanks to their light weight our paperboards reduce carbon footprint of a packaging. At the same time, they offer an sustainable alternative to plastics.

Efficient converting

Our premium paperboards provide excellent reproduction and converting performance in both high-volume packaging applications for global brands and small-batch packaging applications for speciality products.

Our paperboards are ideal for food packaging applications like:

  • Dry foods such as pasta, rice, cereals
  • Frozen and chilled foods like pizza, ready meals, fish and seafood
  • Chocolate and confectionery
  • Biscuits and bakery products
  • Dairy products such as yoghurt multipacks, ice cream and cheese
  • Fresh foods such as fruits and vegetables
  • Pet foods and treats
