“BETWEEN MY TEAM, OUR GROUP RESEARCH RESOURCES AND EXPERTISE AND OUR GREAT NEW TOOL: THE FOOD LAB, POSSIBILITIES FOR BEVERAGE PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT ARE ENDLESS AT AHLSTROM-MUNKSJÖ!

We have pilot assets at our disposal that allow us to reproduce the production process of our base materials: heat sealable or non-heat sealable wet laid, spunbond PLA.

Therefore, we have the possibility to quickly produce all types of tea filter prototypes.

Through the new addition of our converting lab and strong partnerships with main packing machine manufacturers, we are now able to quickly convert any base material to simulate the production process of our customers, to ensure our products have the best converting performance.

Lastly, we have analytical capabilities which ensure the measurement of the result in the cup, and the ability to replicate end-use applications in our food lab.

The whole value chain is replicated within our facility to develop better products faster and provide you with the innovation you need to stay ahead in the market.

That’s what I work for every day.”
