McNairn Packaging has acheived Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) chain of custody certification in our quest to satisfy our goal of producing packaging from well-managed forests for our customers. Chain of Custody links the certified forest to end user products and tracks the path of the raw materials from the forest to the consumer through all the stages of processing. The FSC certification is a promise that the product comes from well-managed forests and we are audited to ensure compliance.
