Tetra Pak achieves milestone towards goal of 100% renewable packaging

August 10/2011

(Tetra Pak) -- Tetra Pak achieves a significant milestone towards its goal of producing 100% renewable packaging with Nestle Brazils launch of two popular milks brands in carton packaging featuring caps made with green polyethylene (PE). 

The first ever use of plant-based polyethylene in carton packaging further strengthens Tetra Paks renewability credentials, nudging still higher the average 73% of renewable material used to manufacture the companys broad portfolio. Over time, as the company increasingly adopts plant-based plastics, it expects to be able to offer a carton range that is 100% renewable.

The green polyethylene has been developed by Braskem, Brazils largest petrochemical company, and is made out of sugar cane derivatives, which are polymerized in plastics for cap production.

Tetra Pak is the world's leading food processing and packaging solutions company, providing safe, innovative and environmentally sound products that each day meet the needs of hundreds of millions of people in more than 170 countries around the world.
