Metsä Board’s white kraftliners        

100% focus on safe and sustainable white kraftliners

Metsä Board is a leading European producer of premium fresh fibre paperboards and a forerunner in sustainability. We produce white kraftliners for consumer goods packaging, retail-ready and food service applications and premium lightweight folding boxboards and food service boards We work together with our customers on a global scale to innovate solutions for better consumer experiences with less environmental impact. We are a prominent supplier, and the global leader in coated white kraftliners.  Our mills are located in Finland and Sweden.

As marketing media becomes increasingly fragmented, and as sales of pre-packaged and online consumer goods and food grows, high-quality corrugated packaging is playing an ever-greater role. Retail-ready packaging is flourishing, and the importance of e-commerce is expanding rapidly. Pleasing aesthetics and sound environmental characteristics for this type of packaging is also vital to enhance the final consumer experience.


White kraftliners for high quality corrugated packaging

Metsä Board’s white kraftliners offer various design and structure options for corrugated retail ready, sales-enhancing packaging that performs equally well during transportation and at point of sale.

With the right liner choice, combined with Metsä Board’s know-how, customers can meet the most demanding packaging needs quickly, cost-efficiently, and responsibly. Metsä Board’s white kraftliners are made from fresh fibres and are suitable for packaging food and other sensitive products.
