The platform The Paper Bag is comprised of leading European paper manufacturers and producers of paper bags. It was created in 2017 to represent the interests of the European paper bag industry and to promote the advantages of paper packaging. The Paper Bag is steered by the organisations CEPI Eurokraft and EUROSAC.
CEPI Eurokraft is the European Association for Producers of Kraft Paper for the Packaging Industry and Sack Kraft Paper for the Paper Sack Industry. It has nine member companies representing a volume of 3.0 million tonnes of paper produced in ten countries. www.cepi-eurokraft.org
EUROSAC is the European Federation of Multiwall Paper Sack Manufacturers. The federation represents over 75% of European paper sack manufacturers. Its members operate in 20 different countries. They produce more than 5 billion paper sacks every year, representing 650,000 tonnes of paper converted in 60 plants. Paper bag manufacturers also contribute to the federation as corresponding members, as do sack manufacturers from all continents. More than 20 suppliers (paper, film, machine or glue manufacturers) are registered as associate members. www.eurosac.org
