You might be wondering where our name, Tetra Pak, comes from. In 1952, our founder, Dr. Ruben Rausing, together with Swedish engineer, Erik Wallenberg, developed a tetrahedron-shaped paper packaging carton as an alternative to the heavy glass bottles used for packaging and distributing milk. This inspired the name of our company and marked the start of our ground-breaking contribution to the safe distribution of food around the world.
Since day one, we have been rooted in our determination to help make food safe and available, everywhere. This belief that we can always do things better has been and continues to be the driving force behind our innovations and our company.
