Minimaid was founded in Teerijärvi, Finland in 1986 and now we are one of the biggest European producers of paper plates. The factory and office are still located where it all began.
Years of constant development have given us the experience, know-how and flexibility to call ourselves Europe's private label expert in disposable tableware.
The journey begins
Karl-Gustav Grahn and Christian Fredman bought their frst Peerless P-34 paper plate machine and a year later the first 15 cm (6") paper plates were produced. Thanks to Christian Fredmans old export contacts, plates were soon exported to Sweden, Denmark and the United Kingdom.
