Mondi to upgrade and expand Kuopio mill in Finland
Mondi, a global leader in sustainable packaging and paper, has approved a €125 million
capital investment project at its semi-chemical fluting mill in Kuopio, Finland. This investment
will increase the facility’s capacity by around 55 thousand tonnes per annum to meet growing
customer demand; enhance product quality and cost-competitiveness; and strengthen the
mill’s environmental performance.
The project includes an upgrade of the wood yard, fibre line, evaporation plant and paper
machine. Start-up is planned for the fourth quarter of 2023.
ProVantage Powerflute®, the semi-chemical fluting produced at the mill, is a high performance
and top quality containerboard grade. Due to its high strength, moisture resistance and
durability, it is a key component of fresh fruit and vegetable trays and boxes as well as
specialised applications. Fit-for-purpose packaging plays an important role in protecting fresh
produce, which is vital considering approximately a third of the world’s food is lost or wasted
every year. ProVantage Powerflute® is ideally placed to meet the growing demand for paper-
based fresh food packaging solutions that are sustainable by design, thereby minimising food
waste and reducing the use of unnecessary plastic.
Andrew King, Group CEO commented: “We are pleased to continue building our portfolio of
sustainable packaging to meet our customers’ needs, leveraging the opportunities offered by
our integrated, cost-advantaged asset base.”
