Fast food packaging

The natural choice for food on the go

Food service and fast food


Food on the go is a trend that goes hand in hand with effective packaging – for protection, food safety, insulation, branding, and ease of use in eating or drinking. Consumers appreciate paperboard, as it uses renewable fresh fibres.

Responsible packaging material for fast foods

Paperboard provides a lightweight and sustainable solution for brand owners and converters looking for a responsible packaging material for their fast food products. It performs well in printing and converting. Versatile paperboard can be effectively combined with different kinds of barrier layers.

Metsä Board’s paperboards are suitable for direct food contact. They use only fresh fibres that are traceable, pure and safe. After use fibre packaging is recyclable, depending upon local recycling services. Our boards have good formability and a white shade that indicates cleanliness. We have both uncoated options for a natural look and coated options for superior print reproduction.

Should you need advice on how to make the most of our boards and services, we offer consultancy on innovative packaging design, sustainability, printing and converting to the best supply options.

This range of boards is recommended for:

  • Paper cups for hot and cold drinks
  • Paper plates and trays
