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, plates, bowls, trays and other takeaway packaging.
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. Our range includes coated boards, for superb printability and brand consistency, and uncoated boards for when a more natural finish is desirable.
Metsä Board’s product portfolio includes both PE extrusion coated paperboard as well as a new eco-barrier board that comes with a special bio-based barrier treatment.
Our paperboards are made from raw materials that are traceable, safe and suitable for food contact. They have excellent sensory properties, ensuring that food products taste delicious.
