AvantKraft Brown kraftliner – naturally tough and high performing

If you’re looking for strong, sustainable kraftliner that adds maximum shelf appeal, AvantKraft by Stora Enso delivers. Our premium kraftliner gives you consistently high performance while maintaining packaging integrity in the harshest environments.

Stands up to the elements – and consumer preferences

AvantKraft is engineered to stand strong against changing climate conditions – and consumer preferences. It makes the perfect choice for packaging that must endure demanding transport and fluctuating weather conditions, while providing a superior surface for your brand statement.

AvantKraft kraftliner board keeps its shape and at the same time offer superior protection and creep resistance during cold, long-haul deliveries. Features include a consistent surface texture, smoothness, shade stability, elimination of impurities, absorbency and minimum washboarding – properties that make AvantKraft a fantastic surface for printing and branding, too. 

AvantKraft Brown adds a natural and authentic colouring to your packaging, while our AvantKraft White Top option offers smooth whiteness. 

Naturally tough and full of character

With its natural brown tone, AvantKraft Brown kraftliner board lends an authentic quality to your packaging. Thanks to the virgin fibre used in production with its low recycled fibre content, this kraftliner exhibits high strength, moisture resistance and cleanliness.

Use it for packing, protecting and promoting products like fruit and vegetables and a variety of other retail applications that require a clean, pure material. It also makes a great choice for heavy-duty applications and industrial packaging.

Fresh fibres for fresher food packaging

To achieve their natural toughness and character, the main raw material used for AvantKraft is based on virgin fibre and is traceable to the source in sustainably managed Finnish forests. The use of these fibres makes our kraftliners strong, pure and hygienic – ideal for fresh produce packaging, for fruit and vegetables and other food products, and in retail or heavy-duty packaging.

Our controlled raw materials comply with European BfR recommendations for food contact, and we work according to the principles of the international food safety standard ISO 22000.

And because it’s recyclable, it can give you a competitive edge compared with other packaging materials from non-renewable sources.
