The company is offering NuVo cup stock paperboard to its customers to cater to their specific brand needs.

NuVo features around 32% post-consumer recycled (PCR) fibre. It allows foodservice operators to use enhanced surface technology for uniform and consistent ink coverage, a premium white shade and a high-definition process print capability.

Clearwater Paper pulp and paperboard division senior vice-president Steve Bowden said: “We are excited to introduce NuVo to our customers, with a quality standard that we believe stands apart from any other paperboard cup product in the market.

“Our newly branded NuVo products are an important part of our plan at Clearwater Paper to offer innovative and sustainable solutions that fit the evolving needs of our customers.”

Starting 8 April, Hrivnak will oversee the company’s financial reporting and controls, investor relations, risk management, tax and treasury functions, and purchasing.
