Metsä Board showed its food service and litholam offering at Fachpack 2015

Metsä Board presented its packaging grades at Fachpack 2015, with the emphasis on its food service boards and its new portfolio targeted at litholamination.

The trend for food and drink on-the go, as well as the desire for convenience, continues to grow rapidly. For this market, Metsä Board offers its pure and safe food service board, Carta Dedica. With excellent consistency and formability, Carta Dedica is ideal for paper cups, plates, bowls, trays and take-aways, as well as general food packaging applications. Metsä Board also has products that can be used in microflute structures that give innovative possibilities for packaging designs.

The demand for shorter runs and high-quality printing has increased the popularity of litholaminated corrugated packaging. This converting method is used particularly in high-end consumer packaging as well as in point-of-sale and displays. At Fachpack Metsä Board showed its litholam portfolio that includes Modo Northern Light Litho, ideal for small lightweight packs when high whiteness and print quality are required, and Carta Selecta, designed for eye-catching applications with UV varnish. The offering is completed with premium Carta Solida and strong Kemiart Graph+, as well as uncoated Modo Northern Light, which gives a totally different tactile feeling.

Metsä Board’s offering for packaging includes folding boxboards designed especially for beautycare, healthcare, food, confectionery and luxury items, as well as general consumer product packaging. Its white fresh fibre linerboards add strength and printability to corrugated boards, producing attractive results for retail packs and shelf-ready packaging.

All Metsä Board’s products are safe for direct food contact, and are made from fresh forest fibres, traceable to source in sustainably-managed northern forests. They are manufactured under the highest environmental and safety standards, and hold PEFC™ and FSC® chain of custody certification and FSC controlled wood status.
