Arla to use wood-based bioplastics in paperboard carton products.

A conventional milk carton is usually about 85% paperboard. We wanted to launch a type of packaging that would be 100% wood-based and in which the plastic would also be wood based. Finnish food manufacturer Arla Oy has claimed that it is the first company in Finland to use renewable wood-based bioplastics in gable top paperboard cartons for milk, yoghurt and cooking products.
