Executive Vice President of Packaging Solutions for Tetra Pak Ola Elmqvist commented on the Tetra Brik Aseptic 200 Slim Leaf carton saying, “The development represents a critical marker in our longstanding work to design beverage cartons for recycling – something that is continuing to set the pace for the paperisation of packaging. By joining forces with Lactogal we’re now demonstrating that it’s possible to progress the sustainability of aseptic beverage cartons while securing food safety and enhancing food access.”
The Tetra Brik Aseptic 200 Slim Leaf carton has been launched by Tetra Pak and Lactogal as an aseptic beverage carton constructed with a paper-based barrier for a more eco-friendly profile. The packaging has been released in Portugal with 25-million cartons already launched, and is crafted with around 80% paperboard and features 90% renewable content in the composition. The packaging is certified carbon neutral by the Carbon Trust and has a 33% lower carbon footprint than alternatives to further prioritize a sustainable construction.
