Cardiff Products Corporation offers shelf-stable solutions to branded customers across North America.

“At Cardiff, we have a passion for quality and innovation that sets us apart in the industry,” says President and CEO Stew Cardiff. “After careful consideration, we chose to work with Tetra Pak because of their strong history of innovation, and technical expertise proven throughout the world. Their quality and growth goals ultimately aligned with ours.”

Cardiff also selected Tetra Pak because of the company’s commitment to offering solutions that protect food, people and the planet. 

“Our vision is to offer great service and sustainable solutions in the evolving marketplace,” Cardiff shares. “Sustainability is at the core of Tetra Pak. They offer renewable, recyclable cartons today and continue to invest in innovative sustainable solutions.”
