The future of flexible packaging is here
More and more brand owners are discovering the benefits of using paper over plastic for flexible packaging. Paper is suitable for both analogue and digital print, sustainable, thin, strong, and food-safe. Our portfolio offers a wide range of solutions, either with a matt finish or a natural shine through soft calandering. We also have many options for applications where paper is laminated with aluminium or other materials.Crown Van Gelder is looking for partners to push the boundaries of what is possible with paper. With a hands-on and practical mindset, we are exploring new ground to find exciting opportunities. Think digital print, barrier coatings, and alternative fibres to further reduce the environmental impact of packaging. So get in touch and let’s talk!
Sugar packaged in sugar beet paper
A world first. In 2020, we announced Crown Native: the first ‘sugar beet paper’ to be produced at an industrial scale. Aside from being strong, affordable and food safe, the paper has a reduced environmental impact: 16% less than our ‘traditional’ paper. Crown Native was developed in close collaboration with sugar beet cooperative Cosun Beet Company, who not only supply the required sugar beet pulp, but also package their sugar in the paper.
