The demand for sustainable packaging among consumers and brand owners all over the world is growing at an exponential rate, which in many cases drives a strong need to replace plastic packaging. Strong partnerships are required to bring about the development and innovation needed to meet this demand. A good reason for Bosch Packaging Technology and BillerudKorsnäs to intensify their successful collaboration.

Now Bosch Packaging Technology and BillerudKorsnäs are developing new sustainable paper-based packaging innovations. Both companies are further strengthening their approach to work closely with partners along the value chain to find better solutions for a sustainable future.

“Developing sustainable packaging solutions is an urgent and challenging topic. New solutions must be sustainable and at the same time ensure efficient processing,” says Dr Stefan König, president of Bosch Packaging Technology.

The first concrete result of this enhanced collaboration is the development of a new packaging concept called Pearl. It aims to show how uniquely formed and right-sized small packages, called shaped paper pods, can contribute to a more sustainable future by utilizing the unique formability of the FibreForm® material (the leading 3D-formable paper on the market, patented by BillerudKorsnäs).

In industries like beauty and personal care, bread spreads, savoury and confectionery, single-use plastic packaging is widespread. “The goal is to support these industries with a sustainable packaging system and replace plastic in product samples, inserts, refills, portion packs and disposable packaging,“ says Simon Johansson, project manager Packaging Solutions at BillerudKorsnäs. “We have already passed several milestones in the project,” Torsten Sauer, project manager sustainability at Bosch Packaging Technology adds. “Now we are inviting selected brand owners to join our journey towards a sustainable future.”
