New paperboards product portfolio

Our extensive range of paperboards includes folding boxboards, food service boards and white kraftliners. Our lightweight paperboards help you create the most powerful brand experiences – from the package itself to various retail solutions and on-the-go solutions for food service.

Lightweight boards are resource efficient in many ways: they consume less raw materials, decrease transport weights and produce less waste. They also enable optimal safety and protection, and more appealing promotion.
