We produce botanical fibers to use as the pulp component for specialty and sensory paper materials. Our fibers are made of plant by-products, such as cocoa shells, spent tea leaves, coffee chaffs and beer grain. Through our LeafLAB, we produce botanical fibers that are ideal for specialty paper and cardboard manufacturers who want something 'out of the box' to make their products stand out while showcasing the plant's look and feel.
As an example, our team has specifically developed Cocoa Fibers. Cocoa fibers, made from recycled cocoa shells, can be used to create a new range of botanical papers, cardboards or molded pulp applications.
We are also happy to work with customers on specific botanicals of choice to create materials with preferred botanical fibers.
