Domtar Expands FSC-Certified Papers

Domtar Corp., Montreal, Que., Canada, has expanded its paper products that are certified to the standards of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). Beginning this past week, the company's Earth Choice product line now includes specialty products used for bandage wraps, popcorn bags, candy wrappers, sugar pouches, hamburger wrap, and a wide range of other everyday applications. Domtar produces these specialty papers at mills in Espanola, Ont., Canada, and in Port Huron, Mich., and Rothschild and Nekoosa, Wis., USA, all of which are certified to FSC standards by the Rainforest Alliance.

Also, all production of the Domtar Tradebook paper will now be FSC-certified and renamed EarthChoice Tradebook. The product had previously been FSC-certified only on request.

As a result of this expansion, Domtar will annually sell more than 150,000 additional tons of FSC-certified paper.

Domtar is the largest integrated manufacturer and marketer of uncoated freesheet paper in North America and the second largest in the world based on production capacity. It also produces paper grade, fluff, and specialty pulps. The company employs approximately 8,500 people.
