The fresh fibre enhances the product in many ways, including giving the paper naturally higher brightness that improves the impact of text and images compared with paper based on recovered fibre. In addition it produces paper grades with high bulk, making the paper thick but light. This means that the customer gets more paper with the same feel as traditional paper grades, but without the higher costs. A lighter paper also leads to lower distribution costs.

We are an industry leader in developing new products based on fresh fibre. Working closely with the customer, the result is innovative products that, compared with traditional paper choices, offer clear cost benefits.
