KAPAG spoils spirit brand owners with vast range of premium paperboards

PARIS, January 2020 – With the opening of the luxury drinks exhibition PLD, the latest addition to the PCD trade show, KAPAG Karton + Papier AG launches its broad range of premium paperboards for the packaging of fine wines and spirits. 

‘The Spirit Compilation’ collection contains seven premium qualities that enthuse consumers due to their touch and feel as well as their sustainability. “We work continuously to create new products that underpin the sustainable qualities of paperboard packaging”, says Alexander Meyer, managing owner of KAPAG. “We have therefore developed several luxury grades that contain a minimum waste paper content of 50%, among them a plastic-free silver quality that can be disposed of with other standard paper waste products. 

Almost all paperboard qualities that are included in the Spirit Compilation were created due to customer demand and/or follow current market trends. 

FibreForm® Board will naturally form part of this luxury collection. The world’s only 3D paperboard, which complements the paper range from BillerudKorsnäs, is a food approved solid bleached board with high tensile stretch and tear resistance. These properties allow for unusually deep embossing that simulate a 3D effect and which was, until recently, unheard of in the field of cartonboard. FibreForm® paperboard not only provides packaged branded goods with a high shelf appeal but will also help guard against counterfeit packaging.   

Visitors are cordially invited to join KAPAG at their stand 73 in Hall 7.2 to explore the new qualities on offer.
