Tetra Pak, Valio Debut ‘World’s First’ Plant-Based Carton

Tetra RexFinnish dairy producer, Valio, is the first company in the world to sell products to consumers in Tetra Pak’s carton packaging made entirely from plant-based materials.

The package, Tetra Rex Bio-based, is manufactured from a combination of plastics derived from plants and paperboard.

Valio will trial the package with Valio Eila lactose free semi-skimmed milk drink in retail outlets across Finland until mid March, and will then use feedback from consumers to decide whether to adopt the cartons more broadly across its chilled product range.

The products will be available in one-liter capacity Tetra Rex Bio-based packages, with a TwistCap OSO 34 opening. They will be produced at Valio’s Jyväskylä dairy in Finland, using a standard Tetra Pak TR/28 filling machine.

In Tetra Rex Bio-based cartons, the low-density polyethylene used to create the laminate film for the packaging material and the neck of the opening, together with the high-density polyethylene used for the cap, are all derived from sugar cane. These plastics, like the Forest Stewardship Council certified paperboard, are traceable to their origins.
