Cardbox Packaging, a leader in paper labels and sleeves, received Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain-of-Custody (CoC) certification from the Soil Association Certification. By becoming FSC CoC certified, the company can address a growing customer need, the desire to use certified paper and pulp-based materials.

“FSC certification is another way Cardbox Packaging is showing its commitment to environmental issues by being able to produce products that are FSC CoC certified,” states Michael Schaid, company’s general manager. The FSC CoC assures customers buy products sourced directly from responsibly managed forests and other controlled sources. The FSC system independently tracks, traces, and identifies wood fibers from the forest through every step of the procurement process, confirming that each supplier along the way follows rigorous controls, management, and reporting practices. “We believe this system offers credibility and transparency, and so is the necessity in our business,” Schaid adds.

About Cardbox Packaging and its innovations

The Pittston-based facility of Cardbox Packaging started its production in the fall of 2019 with new manufacturing equipment for the printing, diecutting, and folding/gluing covered by state-of-the-art Heidelberg machinery. Cardbox Packaging is a producer of various folding cartons, multi-pack bands, beverage cases, and paperboard wraps for food products and K3 dairy products. K3 is a thermo-formed food container (yogurt, soup, oatmeal cups), which contains a paperboard wrap and provides sustainability and additional point-of-sale (POS) features.


The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
