Questions and answers about meat-wrapping papers
The primary purpose of food packaging is to protect the product inside. The packaging must also display information about the product and communicate the product to the customer as clearly and effectively as possible. Food packaging must be the right size for the intended purpose: not too large or too small. This helps avoid food waste.
Product labelling is mandatory on food packaging under the EU General Food Law (EY) N:o 178/2002. Food labelling must provide consumers with enough information about the products in question so that they are able to make informed choices when purchasing products and choose the best products for them. This requires labels to be clear enough for a person without a visual impairment to read them easily and without visual aids, in the same way as if they were reading a newspaper or a book. Responsibility for the accuracy and adequacy of food packaging labelling lies with the food business operator responsible for the product in question.
High-quality and ecologically produced paper packaging is an excellent choice for food packaging. Our paper food packaging doesn’t roll up when it gets wet and stays neatly in place for easy packaging. On top of this, it’s easy to recycle paper food packaging as energy waste.
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 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.

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.
