Innovation leads to the ongoing introduction of new and upgraded tissue products for consumers, heightening the quality and comfort for the end-user. This goes hand in hand with the awareness that increased hygiene has become a key concern, both at home and away from home.

Paper has been used for hygiene purposes for centuries, but tissue paper as we know it today was not industrially produced in the Western world until the mid-1940s.
