FibreForm® paper for plates


Whether through regulation or consumer demand, the shift from single-use plastics to more sustainable materials is growing. Our fully renewable and recyclable FibreForm® paper offers retailers, brands and converters the opportunity to adapt quickly to the changing disposable plate market.

Secure circularity

FibreForm paper consists of 100% renewable, recyclable and biodegradable paper.

Use existing lines

Start using FibreForm immediately with existing thermoforming or press-forming lines and save investing time or money in new machinery.

Potential to customise

Create a customised 3D visual and tactile feel on plates by embossing the paper.

Make the switch from plastic to paper

FibreForm® can be used in converters’ existing thermoforming and press-forming lines. As well as the option to produce biodegradable paper plates in white, environmentally conscious brands can make a strong impression with the natural look and feel of brown paper, without adding a printing requirement at the converter.

In Europe, an estimated 75%* of paper is recycled. That’s SEVEN TIMES* more than plastic! And it also shows the desire among today’s consumers to recycle their waste. Respond to the environmental concerns of your consumers with FibreForm® paper. It’s the ideal material to secure the circularity of your disposable plates:

100% renewable

100% recyclable

100% biodegradable

* Estimated actual recycling rates: plastic packaging 10%, paper & cardboard packaging 75%. Collected recycling rates in the EU according to Eurostat: plastic packaging 41%, paper & cardboard packaging 82%.
