Barrier papers – renewable materials with attractive look & feel

Paper-based packaging is a versatile and cost-efficient method to protect a wide array of products. It offers sturdiness and strength, yet being lightweight. Many consumers prefer barrier paper packaging thanks to its authentic look and environmental benefits.  

Many products need tailored protection to eliminate waste or poor quality when it reaches the consumer. Our extensive expertise in barrier protection for anything from chilled food and dry mixes to confectionery snacks or even healthcare products, guarantees an optimised use of material resources.
