Paper packaging materials are produced from a valuable substance called cellulose which is extracted from trees. These packaging materials are durable, easy to treat and light weight for cargo shipment. They can be made to fold flat for storage and shipping and they can be fluted for extra protection and cushioning.
Paper packaging materials are very versatile, made from natural fibres and can be moulded into various shapes and sizes. This makes the use of paper packing sheets very popular in industries such as hospitality, retail, healthcare, leisure and food industries where they have aseptic and direct food contact applications.
