Ahlstrom-Munksjö food packaging solutions business unit vice-president Jeff Murphy said: “Our confectionery papers are made of responsibly sourced natural fibres, are safe for direct food contact and really provide customers unique solutions to help them meet their sustainability goals.

“We have recently broadened our portfolio to include transparent papers and papers for applications requiring great print quality, allowing brand owners even more inventive options to consider if they are looking to reduce their use of plastic and enhance the overall customer experience.”

Based in Helsinki, Finland, Ahlstrom-Munksjö manufactures speciality papers for bakery, fast food, cheese, sweets, microwave popcorn, fruits and vegetables, and pet food markets.

The Delicitera portfolio includes Cristal transparent papers, Rocalonde twisting papers, and Gerstarpapers for glossy print applications.

Ahlstrom-Munksjö also offers release liners, decor papers, abrasive and tape backings, and electrotechnical paper.

Earlier this month, Ahlstrom-Munksjö, announced the development of a new range of LamiBak release base papers approved by the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR).

Murphy added: “We truly collaborate with package designers, converters and brand owners to produce innovative and sustainable packaging systems that satisfy any unique requirements with the ultimate goal of delivering enhanced performance while streamlining your manufacturing processes.”
