In a 3-minute video available on YouTube, Favini tells the CRUSH story, the revolutionary and unique product which is reusing process residues from agriculture to make beautiful and high performance paper for luxury packaging and graphic design.

The video follows the story of citrus fruits from orchard to paper.  In Italy, the home of Favini, one million tonnes of citrus fruit are used each year to make juice.  Only 40%  is squeezed into juice, the remaining 60%  end up as “citrus mash”. This mash is used to make essential oils, bioethanol, pectin, candied fruit, tyres and many other products. The waste products from these processes is known as “depectinized mash”, which is generally dried, compressed and added to animal feed or for heating.

Favini uses  this “depectinized mash” to replace virgin pulps and other materials turning them into  high quality paper with a unique personality.  Each colour has a different touch depending on the type of raw material used.  The final product is a truly innovative ecological paper  substituting up to 15% of wood pulps and other materials using   residues from the processing of citrus fruit, kiwis, corn, coffee beans, olives, hazelnuts and almonds.
