Strong and pure Kraft paper for bags


Our Kraft paper is strong, resilient and optimised for converting. It enables efficient filling in long, demanding handling chains.


The purity of our Kraft paper makes it free from taint and odours and naturally well-suited to – and approved for – direct contact with food.


Our renewable Kraft paper is made of primary fibres from well-managed Scandinavian forests.


The high printability of our Kraft paper makes the bags attractive and turns them into a cost-effective promoter.

To replace conventional plastic bags, paper bags need to be strong, durable, printable and food-safe. Our Kraft paper is all this, making it packaging material that is a functional and sustainable first choice for bags of all sizes.
