Premier Becomes Stockist of CKB™ Carrier

Premier Becomes Stockist of CKB™ Carrier

Produced by Stora Enso at their Imatra mill in Finland using 100% pure virgin fibre from responsibly managed forests, CKB™ Carrier is a strong, robust and sturdy unbleached multi-layered kraft board most commonly used in the production of food packaging, drinks packaging, bottle holders and more.

Dave Arnold, Premier’s Sales Director for Graphical & Packaging Boards comments “The introduction of CKB™ Carrier to the Premier Board range is a very exciting addition, that enables us to offer a wider choice of products to our customers whilst adding to our kraft board offering; a portfolio that includes Kraftpak and White Peak Kraft Back. As the move away from single use plastics becomes a key priority for many, there is an increased requirement for a strong, home recyclable, plastic-free alternative with excellent tear and burst resistance; and CKB™ Carrier delivers.”

CKB™ Carrier features a smooth, white coated top side combined with a kraft reverse that has a natural look and feel. This robust board offers an increased tear resistance, bending stiffness, and impressive tensile and burst strength providing the protection required to meet the challenges of wet-strength food packaging. CKB™ Carrier boards are suitable for litho, flexographic, rotogravure print processes as well as embossing & hot foil stamping.

CKB™ Carrier is FSC certified, 100% recyclable whilst being supplied by Premier readily Carbon Captured and directly supporting the work of the Woodland Trust, here in the UK. CKB™ Carrier is the ideal, plastic-free packaging alternative for dry, chilled, and frozen food, wine & spirits and organic goods to non-food items; ensuring that your products, brands and of course the environment are in safe hands.

Arnold continues “Environmental features such as CKB™ Carrier’s recyclability, FSC certification as well as it’s Carbon Captured status make it a viable environmentally friendly choice when sourcing plastic alternatives for packaging. As with all of our graphic and carton board range we offer a split pallet service on CKB™ Carrier, customers can order from as little as 100 sheets, minimising unnecessary waste on each job.”

CKB™ Carrier is available for next day delivery throughout the UK from Premier’s network of nationwide, stockholding branches and can be split using Premier’s free pallet splitting service; for more information or to request samples contact your local Premier team or email
