Tetra Pak Package Wins WorldStar Gold Sustainability Award
LAUSANNE, SWITZERLAND, May 21, 2015 /3BL Media/ – Tetra Pak enjoyed further success at WorldStar awards in Milan on May 19: Tetra Prisma® Aseptic 1000 with bio-based plastic, first used by Coca Cola’s Del Valle Reserva, received a gold award for sustainability.
The package, together with Tetra Top with Separable Top, had earlier picked up WorldStar awards in the beverage category.
Tetra Prisma Aseptic 1000 with bio-based plastic uses low density polyethylene (LDPE) derived from sugar cane as the laminate film in the packaging material. When combined with FSC™ certified paperboard, this boosts the renewable material content in the package to around 78%. The package is also 100% recyclable.
