Urbanisation and busy lifestyles are shaping food consumption habits globally. More food is consumed on the go. This means billions of single-use takeaway packs which are used and disposed of every day. The world needs packaging solutions that are easy to recycle and recover and made of renewable materials.
The special barrier treatment developed for MetsäBoard Pro FSB EB1 improves the grease resistance of the board making it an ecological and efficient packaging material. The new product is safe for direct food contact and it is free of optical brighteners (OBA free). It is recyclable with conventional recycling systems.
