“Sappi has been working with leading consumer brand owners to develop and supply renewable paper-based packaging solutions understanding and supporting the goals of making their packaging recyclable without compromising on food protection and shelf life," said Susanne Oste, VP of Innovations and Sustainability at Sappi Europe. "One example of this is the new Sappi Guard range of products providing brand owners with a paper confectionery wrapper to meet market demand for more sustainable products.”
“The acquisition in 2017 of barrier film technology company Rockwell Solutions Limited gave Sappi the opportunity to enhance its product offering by adding recyclable barrier coatings to its products," added Thomas Kratochwill, VP of sales and marketing, Packaging and Speciality Papers at Sappi Europe. "The recent launch of the YES! bar by Nestlé provides a clear example of the benefits brought through collaboration across the value chain in our joint efforts to increase the use of recyclable packaging made from renewable wood fiber.”
Added Stefan Grote, executive VP consumer at Constantia Flexibles: “With our new innovation, we have strongly underlined our competencies in paper-based packaging solutions that ensure high product quality and freshness over the entire shelf life. This is an important step towards more sustainable products that may innovate confectionery packaging."
