The past six months have brought forth a lot of change and uncertainty, but one thing has remained the same - Nekoosa's focus on growing our product offering while striving to provide excellent customer service and substrates to our distributors, end-users, printers and partners. Throughout that time, we have successfully added 14 new SKUs to our Wall Graphics®, Sign-Ad®, Premium Vinyl and Classic Vinyl offering.

As from this summer, sugar beet pulp will be used to make Van Gilse kilo bags of granulated sugar. The kilo bags will be on sale in supermarkets. Sugar beet paper is a ground breaking innovation of Cosun Beet Company and paper manufacturer Crown Van Gelder. Step by step, the paper packaging will be introduced for other Van Gilse products.
The sugar beet paper was extensively tested with paper manufacturer Crown Van Gelder before being taken into use. It is suitable for direct food contact and is strong, machine processable and easy to open and close.
Sugar beet paper is made in part from beet pulp, a by-product of the sugar production process that is currently used as an animal feed and a source of green gas. By replacing 20% of the wood fibres in the paper, sugar beet fibres reduce the environmental impact by 16%.
The new packaging material can be recognised from its small dark dots. These are cork particles produced by the sugar beet to protect the outer layer of their skin. The paper can also be recognised by the Crown Native guarantee logo and the label with the text, Dutch grown sugar beet paper.
