Körber Open House: opportunities for the AFH market


On a global level, the AFH tissue market is showing a steady rise, especially driven by the post-pandemic scenario. A movement that is reflected in Latin America, where demand growth forecasts are 5.2% by 2030 vs. 3.5% for mass toilet paper (Euromonitor data). Given this expansion and the Latin American reality, Körber understands various opportunities to monetize in the Away From Home segment, and opens its doors on August 23th and 24th for an exclusive Open House.   

"We invite our customers and partners to visit our Brazilian headquarters in Joinville, to discuss these opportunities, along with an exclusive demonstration of cost-effective AFH solutions, prioritizing efficiency and profitability," says Mauro Luna, President of Körber Business Area Tissue Brasil.
