Sustainable packaging for dry food

Our renewable papers for dry food packaging are safe and certified for direct food contact. All papers are made from primary fibres, sustainably managed resources and are fully recyclable in regular paper recycling. Our paper production in Europe is already 98% fossil free and by 2030, all integrated mills should be entirely fossil free.

Types of packaging

Food safe sack paper for easy recycling in regular paper streams

Simplify recycling by eliminating plastic. Start using coated sack paper – Billerud Performance White Barrier. Ideal for dry-food applications, it uses coated sack paper as an effective barrier instead of plastic film. The result is a mono-material that is easy for users to recycle.

Strong and natural paper bags for flour, sugar, pasta and grain

Billerud Axello® paper is tailor-made for bags produced in demanding, high-speed Form-Fill-Seal processes. Available in several grades and grammages, coated and uncoated, these paper bags combine strength and printability with purity, reliability and a natural feel. They are not only food-safe, but also allow for high-speed filling and reliable performance throughout the entire value chain.

SWAPP® to paper bags for pasta, beans and other dry food

SWAPP® Bag, with an extra P for paper, is the perfect choice to transition from plastic to paper packaging. Using our experience and know-how, BillerudKorsnäs will help you all the way – from prototype to production scale-up and product launch. SWAPP® Bag materials are designed to run on Vertical Form Fill & Seal (VFFS) machines.
