I've got questions about Insulating boxes.
I'm looking for the person responsible for Insulating boxes.

Ordering groceries and meal kits online for home delivery has rapidly become sensationally popular. Quick commerce and high customer convenience on one hand, increased carbon-foot print and cost on the other.

How does it work today?

Most companies are willing to act to evolve towards a sustainable future, still with high ambitions and clear goals to ensure customer convenience. Though, it is hard to find viable alternatives which can give environmental benefits without major impact on cost performance.

Offering home deliveries of meal kits and online grocery sales is today not an option, rather a must, for all companies in the food industry – all being dependent on securing the cold chain whilst managing a complex logistics set-up with cooling trucks, tight time slots and flexible transport packaging.

How can it work tomorrow?

Stora Enso has a strong commitment to be a forerunner in climate-smart packaging solutions, by developing solutions with the possibility to reduce carbon footprint, dependency on fossil-based materials and increasing possibility for profitable business for our customers.

Insulating boxes by Stora Enso is a newly developed solution that provides high performing insulating capacity in combination with an ability to reduce carbon footprint and fossil-based materials usage. The boxes have very high insulation capacity, making them suitable for both frozen and chilled groceries – or a combination – adaptable for customer purpose.

Our aim is to deliver a solution that makes it possible for you to reduce your dependency on cooling trucks and plastic alternatives. We hope it can benefit both the environment and your wallet.
Different businesses all have different needs. We are ready to talk with you to learn more about yours.

Will your customers be happy?

Q&A about our insulating boxes

A: Yes

Q: When can I buy it?

A: Pilot volumes will be available 2021, commercial volumes during 2022
