Our story

Our roots in the paper industry and our proud history go back more than 150 years. Since then, we’ve grown to what we are today: A world leading company in high-performing paper and packaging materials - passionately committed to sustainability, quality, our customers, and their businesses.

Today, sustainable packaging is a must for any brand that wants to future-proof its business. With our know-how and industry expertise, we eliminate barriers to sustainable packaging choices. We inspire and make our customers feel confident in making the best packaging choices that help reduce their climate impact.

Our starting point is the firm belief that fibers from slow growing Northern forests make for some of the best performing packaging materials. Materials that we, together with our customers, transform into packaging solutions that are not only renewable and sustainable, but that also create value in the form of outstanding product performance, consumer attraction and optimized total cost efficiency.

We believe in challenging ourselves and our customers to constantly improve, because we know that all aspects of packaging can always be made better. This is a mindset we apply to every part of our operations, from responsible wood supply sourcing to the way we develop our materials and the services we provide.

Building a future where lighter, stronger, more durable and sustainable packaging is the natural choice not only requires experience and expertise, but also takes dedication, teamwork and perseverance. This is a journey that we are making together with our talented coworkers and our customers.

In October 2022, we took our next step into the future under the name of Billerud (formerly BillerudKorsnäs). This change symbolizes our growth agenda and our development as an international company.

In essence, we are here to lead the way, not just when it comes to challenging conventional packaging – but challenging conventional business. That’s why our decisions are always guided by the promise of creating a better tomorrow. Because it’s only when you have tomorrow in mind that you’ll do your very best today.

Billerud – Packaging tomorrow.
