Circular Economy

Our position on circularity is built around renewable and recyclable materials, responsible sourcing and doing more with less. Above all, our packaging exists to protect food, making it safe and available everywhere. The circular economy is a regenerative model that reduces waste and keeps materials in use for longer. As such, it is close to Tetra Pak's heart. Our business is designed to minimise waste and optimise use of resources, and we have always acted to reduce the lifecycle impact of our packaging, processing and service solutions.
