The story of Delipap Oy begins from a small boy, Oskari, with sensitive skin – especially to those old styles cloth diapers. His father, Raimo Nuortie, an innovative paper industry expert, starts to develop a new kind of baby diapers. The specialty of the new diapers is an absorption core made from pulp mixed with clean paper. This new invention made Oskari’s skin better but also leaded Raimo to patent his invention and founding his own company.
THE JOURNEY OF MUUMI DIAPERS BEGINS
Delipap Oy starts the collaboration with the Moomin Characters. The lovely Moomin characters take over the diapers and the colorful packages.
COOPERATION WITH FINNISH ALLERGY, SKIN AND ASTHMA FEDERATION

CELEBRATING THE 30-YEAR JOURNEY OF A FINNISH FAMILY COMPANY
We are proud to celebrate 30 years of experience in manufacturing our baby diapers. Delipap Oy is still a Finnish family company and owned by the Nuortie family.
BIODEGRADABLE AND COMPOSTABLE PACKAGING
To diminish the impact on the environment, Muumi diapers are switching to biodegradable packaging bags. The bags can be reused as a rubbish bag for biodegradable waste. At the same time Muumi diapers are relaunched in green packages.
Muumi diapers are now manufactured with green energy, hydropower. Hydroelectric power is a renewable source of energy that does not produce any carbon dioxide emissions.
INVESTMENT IN FINNISH WORK
Delipap decides to invest in a new hypermodern open diaper machine to the Tammisaari plant in Southern Finland. This is the biggest investment in the company’s history.
THE NEW MUUMI BABY DIAPERS
The new state of the art diaper machine starts running in Tammisaari factory, and the new Muumi Baby open diapers are launched to the markets around the world.
Today we are still Finland’s only enterprise manufacturing disposable baby diapers and sanitary towels. The company is still owned by the Nuortie family but its management is now in the hands of the next generation. The new managing director of Delipap is Sanna Karhu, the younger sister of the small boy mentioned above in our story. Another sister, Riikka Nuortie, is the production manager. Oskari Nuortie, who was the managing director of Delipap for 14 years, is now the vice president of Delipap.
With our almost 40 years’ experience, we continue to focus on consumer-driven development, manufacturing and marketing of tested skin-friendly and environmentally responsible hygiene products geared to the needs of all family members.
