The drinks event was a promotion for HannoArt, a carbon-neutral coated paper that is manufactured in Europe by Sappi and distributed locally by Doggetts.
Sappi has a turnover of US$7.3 billion ($7.1 billion), employs 15,000 staff, is active in 100 countries and produces 6 million tonnes of paper per year, said Tielemans.
