UPM Raflatac and UPM Biofuels will join forces to help their customers choose more sustainable packaging materials at Sustainability in Packaging Europe 2022 conference organized 1-4 November in Barcelona, Spain. Both companies have been developing their sustainable solution portfolios as part of UPM’s Biofore strategy that drives the company to innovate for A Future Beyond Fossils.

“We are excited to showcase our solutions for more sustainable packaging to our customers and industry colleagues. Our goal at UPM Raflatac is to help our customers to make the switch to more sustainable labeling solutions and close the loop by choosing materials and services that support packaging recycling and ensure the circularity and reuse of the packaging. We have great examples of these products and services showcased at the conference,” says Matilda Rosti, Director, Marketing, Films & Specials, UPM Raflatac.
