HAMBURG, Germany, Feb. 11, 2020 (Press Release) -Environmentally friendly and naturally tough, Munken Kraft is made from a unique blend of hardwood and softwood virgin fibres. It is machine-finished and fully bleached, delivering high strength and excellent runnability, alongside outstanding printability for a premium end-product finish.

Now we bring the qualities of Munken, our most respected brand, to the packaging market. The limited pilot series of Munken Kraft that we launched during 2019 was well met by our customers, so we expect high demand for the all new portfolio, says Vencel Toth, sales director packaging, and adds: - We plan to further expand the packaging portfolio with, flexible packaging paper and customised paper tailored to specific packaging requirements.

The sized surface of Munken Kraft paper allows for beautiful prints and reduced dusting. Munken Kraft is suitable for flexo and offset printing techniques, as well as polymer coating and lamination. It is ideal for a variety of packaging applications such as packages and shopping bags – for use by the food and non-food industries.
