First introduced in Europe in January 2015 as Tetra Rex® Bio-based, the new Tetra Pak Gable Top Bio-based package was specially adapted for the American market.
Tetra Pak customers using the standard half-gallon gabletop with or without closure can easily transition to the new bio-based version without the need for any additional investment or modification to their existing filling machines.
The Tetra Pak Gable Top Bio-based package follows a long line of successful innovations in sustainability at Tetra Pak, including the launch of the fully renewable Tetra Rex Bio-based package in Europe, the global launch of the industry’s first bio-based cap and the successful introduction of bio-based coatings for all packages produced in Brazil.
The outstanding environmental profile of Tetra Pak’s fully renewable package continues to garner international attention. In the last year, it has been recognized with seven awards, including first place in the Sustainable Innovation category at the Ethical Corporation Responsible Business Awards. Tetra Pak now expects to deliver globally more than 100 million of these fully renewable packages to customers in 2016.
