In addition, UPM Confidio Pro offers superior print results through all printing methods, resulting in a saturated outcome with sharper and more vivid colors. The combination of heat sealability, moisture resistance, grease resistance, and a mineral oil barrier makes it an optimal choice for a wide range of end-uses.

“Our goal is to replace conventional fossil-based packaging and increase the share of renewable packaging solutions. With features supporting both primary and secondary packaging, UPM Confidio and UPM Confidio Pro are recyclable, cost-effective and safe to use. The products offer excellent convertibility and enable a visual look that makes brands stand out on the shelf. By combining all these elements, the UPM Confidio line of exciting packaging products are almost too good to be true,” says Tommi Heinonen, head of sales EMEA, UPM Specialty Papers.
