Our customers can now proudly promote the products we manufacture as being SFI-certified and share our passion for responsible environmental choices.”

By achieving SFI certification, Menasha Packaging joins a growing number of companies, landowners and social and environmental organizations that are committed to improving forest practices on a global scale.

“Demand for products from responsibly managed forests is increasing worldwide and with today’s announcement, Menasha Packaging joins a group of companies that are demonstrating their environmental commitment through certification of the SFI program,” said SFI Inc.
