Grown in unyielding conditions, AvantForte is made from the strongest of fibres.

The requirements for corrugated packaging are tougher than ever. Packages must endure long transportation chains, represent brands visually and keep their contents safe. On top of that, packaging plays a crucial part in fulfilling a brand’s sustainability goals. Your and your customers’ needs have guided us: our ambition was to create a plastic-free, eco-friendly packaging material for the most demanding high-end uses.

The result? AvantForte, a premium kraftliner for your toughest needs. Superior visual appearance, purity and strength combined. With the new patent pending Tri-PlyTM technology, outstanding performance is guaranteed. Available in brown and white top.

The introduction of the new AvantForte kraftliner is part of our transformation story and a direct result of the mill conversion in Oulu, Finland. Scroll down to sign up for the newsletter and to stay tuned for more information.

1 - Suitable for direct food contact

AvantForte’s purity is ideal for packing sensitive food. It helps in keeping dry, moist and fatty foods safe for consumers.

2 - Tough but formable

The new patent pending Tri-Ply™ technology creates higher compression strength and bending stiffness for maximum strength during each step of the value chain.

3 - Less material per package

Lightweight technology helps you use less material and can lower brands’ transportation costs. Additionally, this can help you reduce the carbon footprint of your package. Better performance, with less material.

4 - Effective protection

This tough but light kraftliner is also perfectly suitable for packaging used in complicated supply chains, for example premium e-commerce packaging.

5 - Ideal for brand communication

When printing on AvantForte you can achieve the highest possible print quality and avoid defects such as washboarding. A smooth surface enables better print with less ink.

6 - Eco-friendly packaging material

AvantForte is made of 100% renewable material from sustainably managed forests. Our plastic free kraftliner is fully recyclable.

Stand out visually

The formation and smoothness of AvantForte allow for outstanding print quality. The patent pending Tri-PlyTM technology guarantees excellent bending stiffness, which reduces printing defects such as washboarding. The extremely smooth surface also results in less ink consumption for exceptional visual appearance. Due to AvantForte’s excellent printing surface, brand positioning and differentiation via packaging becomes remarkably easy.

Because of its outstanding visual appearance and strength, AvantForte can be utilized for a multitude of brand communication needs, such as shelf and mailbox ready solutions and harvest-to-display product supply chain.


10% stronger with Tri-Ply™ technology

Single and two-ply kraftliners’ top and bottom plies are typically made of chemical pulp and include some recycled fibres. AvantForte is different: it is a unique kraftliner produced from 3 layers, and they are all enforced using only 100% virgin fibers.

This advanced Tri-Ply™ technology guarantees superior compression strength, bending stiffness and humidity performance. The innovative 3-layer structure can also mitigate strength losses. It makes AvantForte 10% stronger than other existing standard kraftliners, which will allow you to use less material per each package.

AvantForte is available in Brown and WhiteTop

The new AvantForte premium kraftliner is available in two different, but equally stylish colors: brown and white top. AvantForte Brown is ideal for natural and eco-friendly brand communication, whereas the Optical Brightener Additives (OBA) free AvantForte WhiteTop is well suited for a more premium visual appearance.

Both color variations offer an extremely smooth and elegant surface which allows for easy customization and high quality printing, thus granting an altogether premium visual appearance for all your packaging. With AvantForte, quality is always guaranteed, so you can choose whichever color best suits your brand’s look and needs.
