Opportunities in Fibre Packaging from Nestle's Perspective

In the past ‘fibre packaging’ has often been identified with cartons, boxes or labels made from paper or paperboard. ‘Innovation’ or ‘renovation’ were compared to substituting other materials with paper or they were understood as technology steps in papermaking. Today there are novel fibre technologies in the making that will bring a new perspective to the entire packaging world.
