Lee Henderson, Director of European Sustainability and Stakeholder Outreach at Asia Pulp and Paper, said:
“Printers are today demanding harder working print materials suitable for an ever widening range of applications, printing technologies and finishes. SinarKraft is especially suitable for printers looking to diversify into high growth areas such as dry and frozen food packaging. We see global demand for the folding carton category as a whole reaching $184 billion by 2018, representing more than 30% growth on 2012 levels, so the market represents significant opportunity. We’ll be exhibiting our products for printers at F08 in Hall no.4.during Drupa.”
