Do you want to know more about Stora Enso?
In 2019, every second beverage carton in the EU was recycled – a rate that has been increasing year on year and is only set to rise further with upcoming legislative agenda aiming to increase sustainable packaging in the region. Together with industry partners, Stora Enso is exploring investments to boost the circularity of used beverage cartons.
There are great reasons why every third liquid carton in the world is made from Stora Enso carton board. Our premium liquid packaging boards deliver the best in product protection as well as printing, converting and filling performance. They’re durable, food-safe, with an advanced multilayer construction that results in lower package weights.
Furthermore, we help packaging manufacturers and consumer brands use fewer raw materials and create less waste, enabling them to conserve nature while also saving on costs compared with other materials.
Our best-selling liquid packaging board, Natura is the sustainable choice for dairy products and other sensitive liquids.
Natura liquid packaging board is made of virgin fiber at production sites that follow certified product and hygiene management systems. It has an exceptionally high standard for odour and taste neutrality, making it ideal for packaging sensitive food products – and keeping them fresh and untainted over their entire lifetime.
As we always look to improve our material efficiency, making more out of trees, Natura today is enhanced with micro-fibrillated cellulose (MFC) for extra strength at a lower weight.
Natura Life helps brands meet consumers’ growing demand for ethical, ecological and organic products.
Natural brown wood fiber is a renewable material that gives Natura Life its authentic look and visible fiber structure. An unbleached liquid packaging board, Natura Life by Stora Enso is uniquely brown both on the inside and outside. This enhances the carton packaging’s organic appearance, making it stand out on shelves.
For Natura life, less wood is needed and no bleaching chemicals are used, resulting in the reduced carbon footprint and low weight that make this board an even more sustainable choice.
