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.
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.
More product per pallet, faster shelf replenishment, reduced waste handling and more efficient use of shelf space help lower your DPC (Direct Product Cost).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Tetra Recart® packages are easy to flatten and fit into existing carton recycling processes. Tetra Recart packages, like all Tetra Pak® cartons, are recyclable and can be turned into new, useful products when empty.
This category includes all food related products that do not fall under any other category e.g. oil, vegetables, tomato preparations (sauces, paste, puree), soups/sauces. Tetra Recart can be used to fill products with particles and also pet food.
