Paper packaging grabs the customer’s attention, communicates your brand message, and helps your products stand out from the crowd – and a high-quality and ecological food packaging also makes life easier. Carccu® specializes in high quality food packaging paper – with and without printing – and is a Finnish pioneer in the field. We produce and print paper for use in food serving, packaging, and storage directly from our printing house. Our wide selection of food packaging paper includes brown and white options, as well as food packaging printed with a timeless newspaper or a chequered print for serving meat, fish, cheese, or even wings. We deliver food packaging paper in rolls or sheets and you can purchase sheets that are cut to your needs or as off-the-shelf products from our online store. We also provide ecological and high-quality logo-printed food packaging papers.

At its best, food packaging helps reduce food waste. High-quality, ecologically produced packaging protects your product, makes everyday life easier, and helps your brand stand out.
We only use environmentally-friendly, water-based inks and responsibly produced materials to manufacture our food packaging products. Well-produced food packaging is also highly suitable for recycling. Our company has been awarded the ISO 14001 environmental management certification.
Retail packaging is designed to hold together and display a range of consumer packages at different stages of distribution. Retail packaging helps products stand out from their competitors.
By law, all food packaging must display at least the following labels: the name of the food product, a list of ingredients, the quantity of the package contents, the expiry date or best before date, the name, trading name/legal name, or auxiliary company name, as well as the address of the manufacturer, packer or seller within the EU, the country of origin, the product batch/lot number, storage instructions if necessary, instructions for use if necessary, warning labelling if necessary (e.g., may contain nuts), and information on the alcohol content of the food (if it is more than 1.2% proof by volume for liquid products and more than 1.8% proof by weight for solid products).
The most commonly used forms of paper packaging are wrapping paper, kraft paper or parchment (greaseproof paper). The grade of paper is always selected to match the intended use.

The Carccu® story is one of Finnish entrepreneurship and a passion for finding the most efficient packaging solution to support our customers’ brands. The company’s current name is derived from the small village community of Karkku located near the Finnish town of Sastamala in the Rautavesi national landscape. Olli Borg, who is still involved in the company’s operations, assembled the first printing press at EPP Packing’s premises at the Karkku site in the 1980s.
What came next is an eminent part of Finnish flexographic printing history, and, today, we develop our business feet firmly on the ground and our eyes focused on the future. From the beginning, Carccu has also focused on the international market, which has resulted in a long tradition of export trade. Over the years, pioneering vision and innovation have made our company Finland’s leading printing house specializing in customized packaging solutions.
Even though the world has changed, some things remain the same at Carccu – a love of entrepreneurship and a desire to understand the pressing business needs of our customers.
“We are grateful for our roots as a family business, which has been operating for half a century, and for the work of previous generations of entrepreneurs. We also cherish the heritage of handicraft in our work, and our highly dedicated workers have years of solid experience and exceptional technical expertise,” says Lasse Borg, CEO and fourth-generation entrepreneur.
Carccu works with you to find the best packaging solution for your brand – one that is cost-effective and truly distinctive. Our materials knowledge is unrivalled. We know precisely which qualities make paper a top-class product and only use the best raw materials in our products, and our extensive product range ensures we always match the right material for each type of product packaging. On top of that, we always provide professional advice and a premium customer service experience.
Our sustainable foundations allow us to operate responsibly and ethically. As a global player, we constantly monitor international developments, best practices, and legislative changes in our industry. We use modern flexographic printing equipment and our steadfast expertise. We are also actively creating better packaging options to replace the less environmentally friendly alternatives and want to be a pioneer of genuinely environmentally-friendly practices. Our extensive product range includes environmentally friendly and recyclable materials. We favour fossil-free energy, reuse as much surplus material as possible, and promote the circular economy. We take the environment into account in all our activities – from start to finish.
