The seven European cartonboard mills of MM Karton sell their cartonboard products worldwide. Europe is the main market with a share of 80 % – a solid and mature market. Owing to the high level of specific finishing of cartonboard in individual formats and high logistical demands regarding short-term product delivery to customers, the European cartonboard market is primarily supplied from Europe. Trade between the continents plays a minor role, particularly for recycled fiber-based cartonboard.
