We ShoW the Way to Better BuSineSS

Billerud makes the best sack paper in the world. But that is no reason for
taking it easy. We want more. Through the years we have gained solid
experience and considerable know-how when it comes to the value chain
for sacks. This gives us the strength to both identify and solve problems
with existing sacks and to develop new and innovative solutions. And now
we have gathered everything under one roof – Billerud Sack Solutions.
