Benefits of sustainable paper packaging
The demand for innovative, sustainable packaging solutions increased significantly in 2019. Certainly, paper behaves different to plastic, however numerous tests on packaging machines have already shown that the change is possible and stipulated by consumers:
“We are seeing brands making efforts towards putting sustainable solutions on the market. This is very much in line with our own developments. We have adapted to this extremely dynamic market effect and have made implementing it on the new machine a priority.”
