UPM Specialty Papers now offers compostable label face papers for fruit and vegetable stickers

HELSINKI (News release) -- UPM Specialty Papers now offers a compostable solution for paper-based food stickers. UPM LabelCoatTM and UPM LabelCoatTM Prime label face papers are certified as both industrially (EN13432:2000) and home compostable (NFT51-800:2015), helping customers and brand owners meet EU's Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation proposal (PPWR) requirements.

PPWR aims to ensure that all packaging in the EU must be reusable or recyclable by 2030. It also sets out the requirements that sticky labels attached to fruits and vegetables need to be compostable in industrially controlled conditions.

"We are happy to provide a compostable solution, which helps our customers to meet this regulatory change as well as their sustainability targets," says Juhani Ylikoski, Sales Director at UPM Specialty Papers.

In addition to fruit stickers, UPM LabelCoatTM and UPM LabelCoatTM Prime can be used for a variety of other pressure-sensitive labelling applications.
