Sugar beet paper commercially available!

Crown Native is available for sale starting from February 2021 after 2 years of development. Environmental friendly and food compliant.

The commercialization of the sugar beet paper makes Crown Van Gelder the first in the world to produce ‘sugar beet paper’ at an industrial level. The new product line called ‘Crown Native’ reduces the environmental impact by 16% through the usage of less wood fibers compared to traditional paper.

A second advantage of using sugar beet pulp is that it is FDA* compliant. Crown Native is also approved by the BfR36** and suitable for food packaging, unlike most types of recycled papers that contain print ink residue. This makes sugar beet paper the ideal choice for product packaging and also for shopping bags or promotional print. Crown Native is the perfect fit for brands with a sustainability ambition.

For more information about Crown Native or Crown Van Gelder, please contact the sales manager in your country or contact Crown Van Gelder in Velsen.
