The world needs a more sustainable and ecological packaging. Kotkamills’ range of cartonboards represents the next generation of opportunities to support sustainable packaging solutions without compromising quality or the freedom to create unique designs. All our innovative next-generation packaging board solutions, including barrier products, are recyclable, repulpable and renewable. Kotkamills’ board options are suitable for a wide range of end uses such as frozen and chilled food, fast food, dry food, other food (e.g. dairy products, fruits, vegetables), beverages, confectionery, pharma, cosmetics and several types of non-food packaging as well as graphic applications. Kotkamills’ product portfolio includes AEGLE® Folding Boxboard and ISLA® Food Service Boards, both of these including the options of on-machine added barriers. The plastic free ISLA® cupstock for hot and cold disposable cups gives the alternative to recycle the used cups in a sustainable way with normal paper and board waste.
Moreover, Kotkamills also offers Absorbex®, an innovative laminating paper product for the laminate, plywood and construction industries. And further, the company produces ecological, technically sound and visually attractive wood products for demanding joinery and construction.
