As a result of the collaboration between Woodly and Amerplast, the companies have commercialized a novel cellulose-based film made of 100% carbon-neutral and recyclable, the Woodly material.


The newest application made from the film is a heat-sealed bag for takeaway products launched by St1’s HelmiSimpukka restaurant chain in Finland.


The Woodly film, a recyclable wood-based packaging material, is an alternative solution to the traditional cellophane with a reduced carbon footprint. It can also prevent moisture condensation and preserve the quality of fresh food products for longer.


Woodly material is used in St1’s new heat-sealed bags for sandwiches.

In addition to food packaging, Woodly film can be used for labels and to wrap flowers and presents, just to mention a few example applications.


“We have a resourceful collaboration with Amerplast. With Woodly material we can cover many interesting packaging product categories that can benefit from the quality and characteristics of our material,” shared Jaakko Kaminen, CEO of Woodly. "As a producer, Amerplast plays a key role when we are developing new material applications for the growing plastic film markets."


Amerplast has extensive experience in plastics and the manufacturing of packaging. Amerplast provides packaging solutions for both food and non-food applications to the biggest brands in key market segments in Europe.


“The wood-based plastic material offered by Woodly and our technical know-how is a perfect match that supports our commitment further to increase the use of bio-based raw materials in the packaging we manufacture,” added Ari-Pekka Pietilä, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at Amerplast. "We are excited to collaborate with Woodly in investigating the potential of having an alternative to cellophane-type of material that fulfills our customers’ expectations."
