The perfect workhorse for packaging pharmaceuticals and food

TambriteTM by Stora Enso is the natural choice for packaging everyday necessities. A renewable and recyclable material that’s made with wood and pulp fibers from sustainably managed forests, Tambrite is well-known for its efficiency in converting and filling lines.

A robust folding boxboard that delivers run-to-run consistency, Tambrite TM by Stora Enso has been the go-to packaging material of food and pharmaceutical companies for decades. Available as hard-sized (HS) as well as barrier-coated on demand, Tambrite can be made to withstand humid and frozen conditions and to reduce plastics when packaging frozen and chilled foods.

It’s suitable for digital printing, laser and inkjet coding, as well as Braille embossing and other special finishing effects.
