Recent research by Mintel sheds some light on how and why an increasing number of businesses are making the change. We examine some of these reasons.

According to Mintel, there has been a staggering 657% increase in products introduced globally in paperboard cans, stamped with the FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) logo.

The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) is an international nongovernmental organisation that promotes environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world’s forests. To learn more, visit

FSC® is dedicated to the promotion of responsible forest management worldwide.

FSC® labelled brands are permitted and encouraged to speak about their use of recycled content and materials from FSC®-certified forests, recycled materials, and/or FSC®-controlled materials.

The FSC® logo is easily and widely recognised – which means that there are sound commercial, as well as environmental reasons for using it.
