Tetra Rex Bio-based
cartons were first introduced in October 2014, and are the world’s first
beverage cartons to be made completely from renewable materials.

Each carton is
manufactured from Forest Sustainability Council certified paperboard combined
with plastics derived from sugar cane.

Tetra Pak announced
the milestone at the opening of a new sustainability display at the Museum of
Brands in London, which is open to the public from today.

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.”

Chris Griffin, CEO,
Museum of Brands added: “It is good to hear about the significant progress
Tetra Pak is making in terms of delivering fully-renewable packages.

“They are offering
brands more sustainable packaging at a time when environment is top-of-mind
among consumers, and people want to make more environmentally sound choices.”
