Swedish airline Malmö Aviation has launched new breakfast boxes made from compostable paperboard from Iggesund

The new boxes are made of Iggesund’s Invercote and Invercote Bio range. According to the paperboard firm, the outer shell of the box is made of virgin-based fibre and the inside is coated with bioplastics.

In a statement, the firm said that the boxes save space on board, extend the life of their contents, simplify handling and have a lower environmental impact than their plastic-based predecessors.

“The combination of paperboard and bioplastic which are certified compostable to European standards means that the new box functions well in today’s recycling systems and will continue to do so in future systems,” said Jonas Adler, commercial manager of the Invercote Bio products from Iggesund.

“Because the new breakfast boxes are smaller than our current ones, we can load far more onto each serving trolley,” added Malin Olin, inflight and lounge manager for Malmö Aviation.

Olin explained: “That saves weight and space on board and helps the environment. The boxes also have two parts, making them easier to use.”
