A good example of our tailored trainings is a one-day customer training course on the topic of trends, sustainable packaging and product safety. The development of this particular training course started with a customer's desire to learn more about Metsä Board's products, our latest case studies and innovations. The timing and location of the training was adjusted together with the customer to best suit their circumstances. All in all, some 30 packaging developers participated in the training.
The ultimate driver behind the training request was customer's need to support the change from recycled paperboards to Metsä Board's fresh fibre paperboards in food packaging development. The following presentations were selected on the agenda:
- Key characteristics of high-performance paperboards
- Metsä Board's paperboard offering
- Sustainability and product safety
- Case studies by Metsä Board's Packaging analysis and design services
- Case studies on efficiency and lightweighting
- R&D areas like eco-barrier development
In addition, to demonstrate the performance of Metsä Board's products, there were a good selection of product samples to support the training.
