Key Benefits

Tetra Recart carton packages volume compared to traditional metal can

More space for success

The rectangular shape of the Tetra Recart® package leaves no space wasted on the shelf. You get more products on there. It’s that simple. Tetra Recart takes up 30-40% less space than cans and glass jars.

Fresh brand image

Tetra Recart is the perfect solution for renewing your brand image, extending your presence or just giving the category a boost. More than 80 consumer studies show that consumers perceive the package and its content as fresh. A good starting point for innovation and expansion of product lines.

Retailers, watch your DPC drop

More product per pallet, faster shelf replenishment, reduced waste handling and more efficient use of shelf space help lower your DPC (Direct Product Cost).

Light weight. A heavy argument

Tetra Recart packages are very lightweight and requires a minimum of resources. The Tetra Recart® package weighs 64% less than a can*. Multiply with the daily consumption in your country and you get the picture: Save tons in resources, carbon emissions and transportation.

*Package material weight for 400 g packages.

Get trucks off the road

Thanks to their neat rectangular shape and light weight, Tetra Recart packages are highly efficient to transport. You get 18% more filled packages on a pallet, compared to cans. And a single truck filled with empty Tetra Recart cartons corresponds to nine filled with cans.

The friendly package

Designed to simplify kitchen life, this package needs no tools but your hands. Laser perforated tear opening and simple re-closure make the package very easy to handle. Even little hands can open the package.

Green trees

Low environmental impact

Several Life Cycle Analyses* comparing Tetra Recart® packages with steel cans and glass jars show that Tetra Recart has a significantly lower environmental impact. This is mainly because the packages consist primarily of renewable material i.e. wood fibres from FSC™ certified forests. It's also thanks to their resource-efficient rectangular shape and light-weight packaging material.

Green trees FSC

Renewable. It just grows back

Carton is made mainly of wood fibre – a natural and renewable raw material. The FSC™ label is your guarantee that it is sourced from responsible forest management and other controlled sources, and it is supported by global environmental organisations like WWF and Greenpeace.
