Plant-Based Carton Next In Sustainable Packaging Innovation

European food processing and packaging company Tetra Pak has launched an innovative carton made entirely of renewable, plant-based materials called the Tetra Rex®. This eco-friendly, sustainable packaging is made of polyethylene materials derived from sugar cane.

“We believe that increasing the renewable content of our packages is not only good for the environment, but also offers our customers a competitive advantage in the overall environmental profile of their products,” said Charles Brand, VP Marketing & Product Management at Tetra Pak.

The Tetra Rex will be commercially available in early 2015.
