Our story

Sustainable packaging is no longer optional. It’s a must for any brand that wants to future-proof its business. That’s why our decisions are always guided by the promise of creating a better tomorrow, today.

As a leading supplier of virgin fiber-based paper and packaging materials, and with sustainability in our essence, we are passionately committed to our customers and their businesses, every day. With our know-how and industry expertise, we are here to inspire and make them feel confident in making the best packaging choices that help reduce their climate impact.

Our roots and our proud history in the forestry and paper industry go back more than 150 years. In October 2022, we took our next step into the future under the name of Billerud. This change symbolizes our growth agenda and our development as an international company, together with our new mills in North America.

Our starting point is the firm belief that virgin 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.

With that being said, we are not satisfied. 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 takes dedication, expertise, teamwork and perseverance. This is a journey that we are making together with our talented coworkers and our customers.

We are here to lead the way, not just when it comes to challenging conventional packaging – but challenging conventional business. It’s only when you have tomorrow in mind, that you’ll do your very best today.
