Case: VR

Finland’s railway company VR Group Plc. and Woodly Ltd. are pleased to announce a food packaging partnership. VR Group has chosen Woodly’s heat-sealed bags as their new packaging application for food-to-go products on long-distance trains. 

Made from unique carbon-neutral and wood-based Woodly® plastic material, the heat-sealed bags are a sustainable form of packaging that will ensure longer product freshness and reduce food waste. VR plans to raise more awareness about sustainable packaging solutions by supporting a Finnish innovation and partnering with Woodly.

“In addition to carbon-neutral travel, we want to enable our customers to make responsible choices in the restaurant car as well. We prefer products from small domestic producers in our selections, and now we are also developing our packaging materials in an increasingly sustainable direction with Woodly’s wood-based and carbon-neutral material,” says Markku Sammal from VR.

“We are excited about the opportunity to offer a wood-based and sustainable packaging solution to VR and also to the travelling consumer at the restaurant car. The fact that Woodly is now a part of long-distance public transport is a great milestone for us,” comments Jaakko Kaminen, Woodly’s CEO.
