MEMPHIS, Tenn., Oct. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- International Paper (NYSE: IP) and Brazilian corrugated packaging producer Jari Celulose, Embalagens e Papel S/A, a Grupo Orsa company, have entered into an agreement to form a joint venture which will support IP's strategy of growing its global packaging presence and better serving its global customer base. Jari's industrial packaging assets, including three containerboard mills and four box plants, will be separated from its pulp and forestry businesses and transferred to a newly formed company in which IP will hold a 75 percent stake.
