Corrugated Lining Protects Against Biscuit & Wafer Breakage

Manufacturers say goodbye to crumbs with Unipak's micro-flute linings.


Frustrating, isn’t it, when you open a new pack of biscuits or your favorite wafers, only to find them crushed?

With concerns for costs and the environment growing, manufacturers are continually reviewing the effectiveness and environmental impact of their packaging.

However, when ineffective packaging forces customers to buy crumbs, confectionary manufacturers may lose both revenue and reputation.

A viable option to widely-used polyfoils is microflute light-weight carton board or single-face linings, produced by Unipak sal in Lebanon. Used as internal packaging, E or B-flute corrugated lining is strong enough to keep biscuits, cookies, and wafers whole – the way customers like them best.

Fluted linings for confectionary products are made of 100% recyclable, food-approved material. Available in brown kraft, white kraft, or brown / white kraft, linings may be printed in up to four colors.
