The green face of packaging – sustainability included as standard
We contribute to a sustainable world by designing and delivering cost effective packaging solutions for our customers, by preventing waste of packaged products, by optimising material usage and by reducing transport trips through appropriate packaging design. Our products contribute to a sustainable world thanks to their recyclable and renewable characteristics.
All paper-based based packaging is made from a natural and renewable raw material – wood. The wood fibres we use are mostly from forest thinnings and sawmill waste from the construction and timber industry. (Read more…)
All paper-based packaging is 100% recyclable and biodegradable with no need for a single box to go to landfill. All corrugated, solid board and folding carton packaging can be collected, re-cleaned, reprocessed and remade back into another box in around 14 days, demonstrating a truly closed loop approach.

We aim to minimise the amount of packaging used whilst optimising performance across the supply chain through precisely calculating the best pallet formation to maximise space. This allows us and our customers to reduce raw material consumption, take vehicles off the roads and eliminate product damage. (Read more...)
