Paboco moves into full-scale production

Slan­gerup (Den­mark), 20 February 2024 – On the theme “Let’s paper up busi­ness!”, Paboco, The Paper Bottle Com­pany, proudly laun­ches the Next Gen Paper Bottle by initia­ting full-scale pro­duc­tion, mar­king a mile­stone towards a more sus­tainable future. “This is a fan­ta­stic oppor­tu­nity for con­scious brands and con­su­mers loo­king to make a real dif­fe­rence”, says CEO Tim Silbermann.

The Next Gen Paper Bottle signi­fies Paboco’s dedi­ca­tion to pur­suing its vision of fully bio­based bottle pack­a­ging. With a new state-of-the-art manu­fac­tu­ring site in Slan­gerup, Den­mark, Paboco is gea­ring up for full-scale pro­duc­tion. The aim? To deliver over 20 mil­lion paper bot­tles by the end of 2025.

A natural choice for a broad con­sumer market
Built on the idea of less fossil, more natural mate­rials, the Next Gen Paper Bottle offers a minimal bar­rier solu­tion while staying fully recy­clable as paper pack­a­ging. Paboco empowers brands with design fle­xi­bi­lity, allo­wing them to choose bet­ween stan­dard paper bot­tles or bespoke designs. This ver­sa­ti­lity allows them to express their iden­tity and con­nect with con­su­mers on a deeper level.

Initi­ally tar­ge­ting brands in the beauty and home­care sec­tors, the Next Gen Paper Bottle shows pro­mise across various indus­tries, inclu­ding pre­mium spi­rits, food and beverage, vit­amins and pills, pet care and more, indi­ca­ting signi­fi­cant advance­ments in these areas. This scope offers con­su­mers the oppor­tu­nity to be part of dri­ving change by choo­sing FSC-certified fibre-based pack­a­ging with less cli­mate and envi­ron­mental impact.

Acce­le­ra­ting growth for a sus­tainable impact
With ALPLA as the new majo­rity share­holder and a long-trusted partner, Paboco is primed for acce­le­rated growth, posi­tio­ning itself as a leader in sus­tainable pack­a­ging solu­tions. CEO Tim Sil­ber­mann unders­cores this momentum by stating:

The Next Gen Paper Bottle marks a mile­stone in our journey towards a fully bio­based paper bottle. With ALPLA’s backing and our focus on full-scale pro­duc­tion, we’re tran­si­tio­ning from an inno­va­tion pio­neer to a pro­gres­sive busi­ness, ready to fill our order books. Ulti­m­ately, we are here to make a sus­tainable impact and start a move­ment by pla­cing paper bot­tles in the hands of every consumer.”

Tested and sup­ported by world-leading brands
Since 2021, Paboco has been testing its ground-breaking pro­ducts in part­ner­ship with Pio­neer Com­mu­nity mem­bers: The Absolut Group, Carls­berg Group, The Coca-Cola Com­pany, L’O­réal, and Procter & Gamble.

After years of inno­va­tion and suc­cessful col­la­bo­ra­tions, we are now pre­pared to launch the Next Gen Paper Bottle on a larger scale”, Tim Sil­ber­mann con­ti­nues. “I wel­come more con­scious brands that want to join us in chan­ging this industry for good.”
