Based on the belief that Miscanthus is one of the raw materials of the future, a framework contract was signed by paper mill WEPA (formerly Van Houtum) and Cradle Crops back in 2014.  Under this, WEPA guarantees purchase of the crop through a 10-year purchase agreement after planting. The motivation for WEPA to incorporate Miscanthus in its hygiene paper is, on the one hand, the sustainable nature of the crop which is in line with WEPA's Cradle to Cradle certification and, on the other, the increasing scarcity of waste paper. In 2022, it was announced that WEPA is investing further in Miscanthus processing and expects to need 1,000 hectares. Cradle Crops will organise the planting of this acreage in cooperation with growers in the coming years.
