Natura

Sustainable liquid packaging board for sensitive items

Natura is the renewable, sustainable choice in liquid packaging board for sensitive items like dairy products and a wide variety of liquids. Natura has been upgraded: our New Natura is enhanced with MFC (microfibrillated cellulose) for extra strength and lower weight. 

Whatever the size and shape of your liquid packaging, Natura by Stora Enso can help it shape the future of sustainable packaging. Listed in the global Environmental Product Declaration (EPD®) system, Natura is a recyclable bleached board that is based on renewable fibres. Besides being environmentally friendly, it delivers the best in product protection, printing, converting and filling performance, and cost effectiveness.

Natura liquid packaging board features an advanced multilayer construction. Its two outer layers are made of bleached sulphate pulp, while the middle layer contains CTMP to provide the bulk and stiffness for improved yield and packaging performance. Natura has helped food and drink brands across the world to use fewer raw materials, less paperboard waste and lower package basis weights – in short, to save money compared with conventional board. Our New Natura is enhanced with MFC for further light-weighting and strength.

Safety first in beverage and food packaging

Natura boasts an exceptionally high standard of odour and taste neutrality. This makes it ideal for packaging sensitive food products, and keeping them fresh and untainted over their entire lifetime.

Natura liquid packaging boards are made of virgin fibre produced in a strictly controlled production environment. At Stora Enso, we have certified product and hygiene management systems at our production sites, so you can rest assured that Natura meets the toughest standards of quality and food safety.

Extensive range of protective barrier coatings

When combined with the right barrier, Natura serves a wide array of packaging applications such as dairy products, milk, juice, soups, spices, water and yoghurt packaging.

The Natura product family with barriers includes New Natura, New Natura 2PE, New Natura Barr, Natura Duo and Natura Duo 2PE.
