Finnish packaging board producer Stora Enso is producing airtight paperboard cups for European food brand owners. The new cups are used for packing dry foods, including snacks, cereals and confectionery.

The firm says the paperboard cup meets growing consumer demand for environmentally sustainable packaging and user-friendly convenience. The cup, based on Stora Enso’s paperboards with high barrier coatings to protect food from moisture and grease, is said to be suited to the ‘eat on the go’ market.
