Replacing plastic is a key element in the drive towards a circular bioeconomy, decoupling from fossil materials and replacing them with renewable and recyclable alternatives. Consumers demand change, and we help respond to that demand.

Cup-shaped packaging is produced with cup making technology where a printed sleeve is formed together and sealed to include the cup bottom. This converting technology requires sealable, formable paperboards that perform well in the stringent demands of curling and shaping. A well-formed cup feels sturdy and stiff in your hand. Depending on what you need to protect, the right barrier keeps contents safe.

CupformaTM by Stora Enso is designed not only to withstand the converting process and enable a good surface for printing, but also to ensure optimal product protection and mitigate food waste in the supply chain to consumers. For a wide range of demands, you can pack almost anything with Cupforma.

The new paperboard cup of Fazer Yosa 200g produces 56% less CO2 throughout its life cycle

“Responsibility has been at the heart of the oat-based Aito product family from the very beginning. Customers have welcomed the new, more sustainable packaging. We have also received good feedback from consumers on reducing the amount of plastic. The new cups are more convenient for consumers, as they are easier to recycle than before: the entire cup can be sorted into cardboard collection, and the aluminium lid placed into metal recycling.”
