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 ongoing mill conversion in Oulu, Finland. AvantForte’s production will ramp up in late 2020 or early 2021, and the product will be available soon after. Scroll down to sign up for the newsletter and to stay tuned for more information.

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.
This tough but light kraftliner is also perfectly suitable for packaging used in complicated supply chains, for example premium e-commerce packaging.
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.
AvantForte is made of 100% renewable material from sustainably managed forests. Our plastic free kraftliner is fully recyclable.
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.
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.
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.
The role of the package is not just to transport and protect the product but it also helps create a perception of the product.
The delicate nature of the product means that packaging is key to ensuring that it arrives at its destination safe, fresh and well.
