Huhtamäki Oyj's subsidiary Huhtamaki, Inc. has purchased a manufacturing
facility in Batavia, Ohio, in the United States to set up a new state of the art
manufacturing and distribution unit. With the purchase Huhtamaki continues its
series of investments in expanding and strengthening its disposable product
offering and capability in the United States. "With the investment we begin to
fully leverage our paperboard packaging expertise and our global foodservice
position also in the United States," says Jukka Moisio, CEO of Huhtamäki Oyj.

The total investment including the site purchase, improvements in infrastructure
and machinery investments to set up capacity will be approximately USD 60
million (EUR 45 million). Majority of the investment will take place in 2013.

Batavia during the second half of 2013 and expects to create approximately 200 jobs by the end of 2016. The site is strategically located in Batavia, Ohio, with excellent rail and highway access and proximity to major foodservice markets. The optimal location of the site will enable Huhtamaki to better serve its U.S. foodservice and retail customers.
