What you eat and drink, and how your food products are packaged, matters to your health and to the environment. Climate smart packaging minimizes environmental impact, protects and preserves it's contents in a natural way and is easy to transport, store, use and recycle.
Tetra Pak offers packaging from plant-based raw materials - paper board from wood fibre and plastics from bioplastics from sugar cane. Trees and sugar cane bind carbon dioxid as they grow. This carbon dioxide is released if the material is burned, but as new plants grow it is reabsorbed in a natural cycle. In contrast raw materials as fossil oil used in traditional production of plastics lead to a net addition of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere.
Tetra Pak packaging is made from wood fibre from sustainable forestry where trees are replanted.
1. Paper Board - The main material. It's renewable, durable and easy to recycle.
2. Plastic - Makes the carton package air- and watertight. The plastic layer is very thin since the carton itself is robust.
3. Metal - Protects contents from air and light and ensures they are long-lasting. That's way there is a very thin layer of aluminium in our aseptic packages.
Our entire business is based on protecting food in the best possible way, while using as little of the earth's resources as possible.
