Arla embraces Tetra Rex bio-carton

Scandinavian dairy products supplier Arla Food has adopted a bioplastic carton developed by Tetra Pak.

From 13 April Arla began using the 1-litre Tetra Rex Bio-based carton for sales of its Eko organic milk range in Sweden. Plastic parts of the carton are made from sugar cane feedstock and the paperboard is all recycled, giving the Tetra Rex a 100% bio-based content.

The new package received its commercial debut in January 2015 with Helsinki-based dairy producer Valio for a similar product, as part of a two-month.
