Tetra Pak Launches 100% Renewable Carton Packaging in US

Tetra PakSustainable packaging company Tetra Pak says it has produced the first 100 percent renewable Gable Top package in the US: cartons developed from a combination of paperboard and sugar cane derived plastics.

First introduced in Europe last year as Tetra Rex bio-based, the new Tetra Pak Gable Top bio-based package was adapted for the US market, the company says.

Carmen Becker, president and CEO at Tetra Pak, says being the first to offer a fully renewable carton to the US market gives his customers a competitive advantage. Tetra Pak customers using the standard half-gallon gable top with or without closure can transition to the new bio-based version without the need for any additional investment or modification to their existing filling machines.

In addition to its Gable Top bio-based package in the US and the Tetra Rex bio-based package in Europe, the company has launched the industry’s first bio-based cap globally and introduced bio-based coatings for all packages produced in Brazil.
