Moulded Fibre


Combining the company’s renowned expertise in fibre and colour with the relentless ambition to embed sustainability wherever possible, COLOURFORM is a renewable, recyclable and biodegradable moulded fibre packaging solution that will make you think differently about sustainability.

Made using 100% renewable, natural wood fibres from well-managed forests or high quality recycled content from our own world-class recycling plant – which gives new life to post-consumer waste including used coffee cups – we created COLOURFORM for a circular economy that leaves no trace.
