Tetra Pak has now delivered more than half a billion packs of Tetra Rex Bio-based, the world’s first beverage carton to be manufactured entirely from renewable materials.
Tetra Rex Bio-based, which was launched in October 2014, is manufactured solely from FSC certified and controlled sources paperboard, together with plastics derived from sugar cane, all traceable to their origins.
Packages made from renewable materials are essential for preserving the environment for future generations. Renewable resources can be replenished naturally over time and enable a move away from fossil fuel based materials, reducing the environmental impact as well as improving resource efficiency
Christina Chester, product director at Tetra Pak, said: ‘We are delighted to see the growing popularity of Tetra Rex Bio-based among customers. Packages made entirely from renewable materials are not only good for the planet, but also good for brands that seek to differentiate themselves with stronger environmental messages. With everything traceable to its plant origin, consumers are assured that the package they hold in their hands is derived entirely from plants.’
