Discover the complete package

UPM's recyclable papers are suitable for most types of dry food packaging including bags, standing pouches, sachets, and wrapping. Our papers offer protection even without a plastic laminate. So why not choose a sustainable paper that is ideal for end-uses such as flour bags, sugar bags, and tea packaging? Emphasise the natural goodness of grains. Choose strength for heavier contents like rice. Or underline the indulgence of luxuries like premium pasta.


Remarkable papers for recyclable packaging

Our papers for dry food packaging offer unlimited opportunities to reduce your use of non-renewable packaging materials. All are produced using fibre from sustainably managed sources and are recyclable in regular paper recycling streams. Our papers tailored for dry food packaging are also safe for direct food contact.
