Sustainable packaging for fruit and vegetables

Made from renewable papers, our bags and transport boxes for fruit and vegetables are safe and certified for direct food contact. Superior humidity resistance enables products to be protected during transport and handling. 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 97% fossil free and by 2030, all integrated mills should be entirely fossil free.
