Folding carton (also known as box board) is a low grammage solid board ideally suited to the packaging of lightweight products. We offer a range of folding carton styles such as boxes and trays all using a variety of folding techniques. The flexibility of folding carton allows you to design ‘curves’, creating innovatively shaped packs that can differentiate your product from the competition.
