‘We are extremely excited that once again a wide selection of cartons using our paperboards have been selected as finalists,’ said Mika Paljakka, vice president sales EMEA, Metsä Board. ‘As the focus is now to reduce the use of non-renewable materials and meet consumer needs for total safety and an improved user experience, we firmly believe that our fresh fibre paperboards are well positioned to meet these requirements. When our paperboards are combined with cutting-edge design, as shown by the quality of the entries received for these awards, the benefits are universal.’
