The most important function of packaging is to ensure the safety of a product for consumers. Packaging protects products during transport, prolongs product life and conveys important information about the composition and use of products.
Paperboards can reduce or replace the use of plastics in many packaging end uses, and the application areas will widen as the properties of paperboards are further developed.
Consumers use daily approximately 160 million packages made of Metsä Board’s folding boxboard. By reducing paperboard weight by 1%, material savings equivalent to 1.6 million packages per day can be achieved.
