We are well-known in the industry for being first-to-market with carton board packaging in market sectors dominated by glass or plastic and now we have found the ideal solution for the drinks industry. It's pioneering packaging and we are delighted to partner Ennstal Milch and bring the Cartocan® to the UK market."
