The use of fluoro chemicals in food contact papers had raised some attention/concern by the general public. Metsä Tissue’s baking and cooking paper products do not contain any fluoro compounds, and fluoro chemicals are not used in the company's paper production whatsoever, according to a company release this past Friday (June 17), that chose to directly address the issue. 

SAGA is Metsä Tissue's premium brand for baking and cooking papers noted by the company for its sustainability and safety, as well as purity from any of the chemicals of possible concern.

"In Metsä Tissue, we take product safety very seriously. All aspects of the production process are monitored closely, from fibers to packaging, and SAGA baking and cooking products are tested in many ways. A detailed management system ensures that the products are hygienic throughout the production, packaging, and transportation stages," said Katrin Bunner, VP of product development and marketing at Metsä Tissue, Baking & Cooking. "We know the origin of the pulp that we use as the raw material in our products, and can confirm that our baking and cooking papers contain no fluoro chemicals or compounds. This has been tested and proven also by an external research institute, Eurofins. SAGA is always a safe, high-quality choice." 

SAGA operates always sustainably. All of the company's paper products are biodegradable and compostable. The products' main raw material is renewable wood from sustainably managed northern forests. Sustainability also means that the company helps customers achieve their own sustainability targets. For example, these baking and cooking papers significantly reduce food waste in professional kitchens. 

SAGA products have several certifications that show that its products are safe and reliable to use. Certifications are proof that products meet the requirements set by legislation, for example. The certificates are granted by a third party who also evaluates, tests, or audits the compliance of the products.
