Swedish food processing and packaging company Tetra Pak has announced the launch of a new bio-based version of its Tetra Top package which will have a plant-based renewable content of more than 80%.
The new generation carton bottle is designed with a cap and top made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE) derived from sugarcan, and will make its global entrance in the United States in partnership with water bottle packagers JUST water.
Tetra Pak’s executive vice president for product management and commercial operations Charles Brand said: “Packages made from renewable materials are not only good for the environment, but also offer our customers a competitive advantage.
“Consumers choose JUST water because they appreciate its brand values, and want this to be reflected in the whole user experience. We are pleased to have come up with a package that is aligned with this focus without compromising convenience and functionality.”
