Boardio®  - The game changer of sustainable packaging

Boardio® mainly consists of renewable virgin fibers from sustainably managed forests – for the US market the fibers are also bleached. It also includes a PE layer and a razor thin aluminum barrier, which is necessary in order to ensure excellent gas tightness, product protection and product shelf-life. This reduces food waste, and therefore also reduces the overall CO2/GHG impact. A longer shelf-life also improves food security, ensuring that the consumer can have access to quality food products also if/when logistical food supply chains are slowed down or compromised for some reason.

 

The Boardio® logistics have been optimized, with all components delivered flat to the customer, as opposed to transporting massive amounts of air in already finished packaging. This leads to up to 85% less transports, which drives down costs and improves the CO2/GHG emissions profile even further.

 

The overall CO2/GHG emissions relating to Boardio® are very low compared to competing packaging solutions.

 

Boardio® is highly recyclable in the commonly available paper waste recycling stream. Around 80% of all paper and paperboard packaging is recycled in the US, while the figure is slightly lower in Canada and Europe.

 

Boardio® has a unique shape, look and feel which immediately signal sustainability, aesthetics, convenience and food safety values to the consumer.
