Neenah Packaging introduces new hemp fibre papers
Alpharetta, GA - Neenah Packaging is addressing a market demand with the introduction of new hemp fibre papers, a new colour, and new finishes geared to the global cannabidiol (CBD) market.
According to a 2019 industry research study, the global CBD market is expected to grow at a CAGR of roughly 32% over the next five years. “We’re addressing this market headon by supporting the designers of cannabis and CBD brands with hemp-infused packaging papers that align with the visions and values of these products,” said Michelle Turner, Neenah brand manager.
These new hemp board papers are available in a vellum finish, in three of Neenah folding board’s most popular shades: PC White Hemp (the hemp fibres are highly visible in this bright white, 80% PCW sheet); Desert Storm Hemp (a more earthy and subtle showing of fibres add visual texture to this popular 30% PCW shade); and Deep Black Hemp (a rich, dyed-through, 30% PCW board for brands that want to use hemp papers with no visible fibres).
The company has also introduced a new colour. “We heard feedback from the market that there was room for a more economical shade of black in the line. This new shade addresses that want, while directly complementing the Concrete and Wrought Iron colours in the line,” said Turner. New Industrial Black is a an ever-so-lighter, everyday, hardworking, beater-dyed black board, for when the extra dark richness of Deep Black isn’t what designers are looking for.
Although coated, these papers do not have a shine but instead provide a matte look. The company’s new finishes are designed to coordinate with papers from Neenah’s premium uncoated writing, text, and cover portfolio.
These new items, along with Neenah’s complete portfolio of folding board papers can be found in the new Neenah swatch book.
