Cocoa Paper for Packaging

The Challenge
As packaging manufacturers look for increasingly sustainable products, the need for materials that can be created using by-products continues to gain popularity. Not only should products be efficient from a production standpoint, but ideally, they also need to offer natural appeal that consumers demand.


Our Solution
Our Cocoa Paper™ was born from our desire to offer the industry something truly unique—packaging made from botanical “second life” materials. Our patented botanical technology increases the value of cocoa husks (once considered waste) by transforming them into creative packaging materials that offer distinctive, sensory options that give a premium feel. Cocoa Paper™ is a new range of food contact materials made with a high inclusion rate of recycled cocoa shells. SWM’s LeafLAB has developed a unique cocoa fiber which can be used for paper and board manufacturing to create tailored solutions applicable for many industries: chocolate, confectionary, bakery, decoration, graphic and tableware. This specialty paper is a perfect match for luxury, all-natural food packaging and can elevate products with its multi-sensory benefits. Not only do these specialty botanical packaging materials provide an eco-efficient image, but they can differentiate products in the market.
