Busy lifestyles have seen the rapid expansion of food-on-the-go and convenience meals. All require packaging that is safe for direct contact with food, allows good presentation and protection, and is formable into cups, dishes, bowls, plates and containers. Paperboard is popular with consumers, as they know it is made from a renewable and recyclable resource – fresh fibres.
Metsä Board has developed a range of boards especially designed for food service. It includes coated boards, for superb printability and brand consistency, and uncoated boards for when a more natural finish is desirable. There are boards for hot and cold drink cups, for deep bowls and trays, and plates, take-away containers and food packaging.
