Flexible packaging is a growing business, and there is an increasing demand for paper instead of finite raw materials such as plastic. Flexible packaging papers are a good option for food and beverage brands who prefer renewable and recyclable packaging that meets the needs of eco-conscious consumers.

KINGSEY FALLS, QC , Dec. 4, 2019 - Cascades (TSX: CAS), a leader in eco-friendly recycling, hygiene and packaging solutions, is launching an innovative container for fresh food packaging on the North American market: a cardboard tray certified 1 according to Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) standards, made from 100% recycled fibres, mainly from post-consumer sources, and which is fully recyclable.

The demand for virgin pulp is on the rise – a trend that’s expected to continue through 2021. Alongside that, there’s an industry-wide shortage of quality sources of recycled fibers, resulting in record high prices for white paper products.
