Finns Create Alternative to Plastic Food Packaging

Finnish start-up Jospak creates a board-based tray packaging that contains 85% less plastic than regular plastic alternative.

The company’s innovation is a high-barrier board-based tray and a separate multi-layer barrier film hermetically sealed with lidding film, suitable for modified atmosphere packaging (MAP).

The consumer can peel away the inner film liner after use and dispose the materials in the dedicated waste streams or recycle.

This innovation was named as a winner of WorldStar 2019 Award.

Jospak Oy was founded in 2014.
