Renewable, Tetra Rex bio-based

First fully-renewable package

Tetra Rex® Bio-based is manufactured solely from a combination of plastics derived from sugar cane and paperboard. The bio-based plastics used by Tetra Pak are produced by Brazilian chemical company, Braskem, which sources all of its feedstock from sugar cane grown on degraded pastures.

Tetra Rex Bio-based is available in a range of sizes, from 250 ml to 2000 ml, for all chilled milk specifications.

Key benefits

4 Tetra Rex carton packages

High reliability

Our Tetra Rex filling machines give producers years of safe, problem free production.

This is also one of the safest packaging systems on the market. A patented folding process prevents products coming into contact with the raw edge of the paperboard and four different material combinations provide the optimum safety barriers for all kinds of chilled products.

Space saving and flexible

Tetra Rex Packages are made from flat-packed blanks, which are easy and economical to transport and store. Using blanks in production has the added advantage of making it easy to switch between different package volumes of the same bottom format.
