The majority of Tetra Pak cartons in Ireland and the UK can now use paperboard sourced from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified forests and other controlled sources. This development is a first in Europe, where a major liquid food and drink packaging manufacturer is able to launch such a wide-scale roll out. It means household milk, juice and liquid food brands will be able to sport the FSC logo across many of its packs within the next 12 months. Brands such as Avonmore, Premier, Snowcream, Kulana, Jaffa Gold, Arrabawn, Lee Strand and retail own label products packed in Tetra Pak cartons will be included.  

Speaking at the announcement Richard Hands, environment manager Tetra Pak UK & Ireland said: “We know a sustainable approach to business is of critical value to retailers, brands and consumers, and FSC certification demonstrates our commitment to manufacturing to the highest level of environmental performance.”
