At Interpack 2020 Metsä Board would have been showcasing its lightweight paperboards that help reduce carbon footprint throughout the packaging value chain. Fresh fibres are the starting point for the circular economy – without fresh fibres there would not be any recycled paperboards. Fresh fibres are also pure by nature and therefore suitable for food packaging. Metsä Boards packaging design experts would have been present to discuss the latest trends and solutions in packaging design.
Metsä Board would have highlighted its plastic free eco-barrier paperboard and its end-use examples. Press release: https://www.metsaboard.com/Media/Product-news/Pages/metsa-board-introduces-a-new-plastic-free-eco-barrier-paperboard-for-food-and-food-service-end-uses.aspx
