Stora Enso is introducing new environmentally-friendly food safe packaging papers to shift away from plastic.
Plastics are quickly becoming a material of the past and in addition to introducing two new fiber-based papers that meet strict food safety regulations, Stora Enso has added new grammars for other packaging papers to expand the possibilities of use.
“Many of those in the food industry are taking active steps to shift to a sustainable packaging future, aiming to eliminate plastics. There’s still quite a bit in development to respond to these goals as we’re still at the beginning of the move from plastics to alternative materials. However, there are many intelligent people working to find new solutions. At the same time, growth in the flexible packaging paper market globally is strong, at a pace of about 2 per cent each year. So we’re going to see enhanced innovation and greater supply in the future,” says Teija Kärkkäinen, Business and Product Development Manager at Stora Enso.
