Fiber-based packaging solutions @ Rosupack 2019

Rosupack News Fair 2019 Polo AG Russia

On 19.06.2019, at the RosUpack 2019, we had the pleasure to present a new packaging solution for the packaging industry: Flexible Paper!

The RosUpack exhibition in Moscow is the largest event for this industry in Russia. Our presentation on “Paper as a functional material for flexible packaging – the trend of the future”attracted many visitors.

During their presentation our Russian Sales Manager for paper, Konstantin Zobkov, and our Vice President, Wilhelm Massegg, together with Yevgen Zolotkovski, Sales Director for flexible paper at our principal Koehler Paper Group, underlined the advantages of paper compared to plastic for the packaging industry.

Paper is one of the most important sustainable packaging materials. In the very near future it could be integrated in a closed recycle process, by using secondary fibers in the production of corrugated packaging, cardboard packaging and hygienic paper. One of the advantages of using paper and cardboard is lower licensing  fees for companies in different industries.

Besides all advantages for businesses, also consumers perceive paper as the most environmentally friendly material which stimulates sales and leads to a higher income.

For Polo and Koehler Paper Group it was an interesting experience and a great opportunity to present a new solution for the packaging industry. We are looking forward to successful future presentations of this new solution!
