The Cupforma range offers materials for drinking cups and includes Cupforma Natura Bio, which has a lightweight base board and can be used as package material for many kinds of foods.

The Cupforma Dairy board is suitable for cup-type consumer packages of dairy products such as ice cream and yoghurt, and is available with different coating options.

Stora Enso's renewable option Trayforma is used for ready-meal trays and replaces plastic and aluminium in food trays.

Trayforma Performance is available with a PET coating, which allows for cooking in an oven, or with a biodegradable, non-ovenable coating suitable for salads and other fresh foods.

The company will also introduce Primeforma, a new kind of food packaging board suitable for thermoforming on existing packaging lines, and is environmental-friendly as it can be recycled.
