Lactogal is a Portuguese food products company that specializes in dairy products, milk, fruit juice, and mineral water.

The introduction of the Tetra Brik® Aseptic 200 Slim Leaf carton with paper-based barrier, in partnership with Lactogal, offers a packaging solution that can be distributed under ambient conditions, while achieving a 90% renewable content milestone.

This launch is part of a large-scale technology validation, with approximately 25 million packages currently in use in Portugal.

Comprised of about 80% paperboard, Tetra Pak’s package increases the renewable content to 90%, decreasing its carbon footprint by one third, and receiving certification as Carbon Neutral by the Carbon Trust.

Jose Capela, president of Lactogal, praised the collaboration, stating, “We are both committed to an ambitious sustainability transformation, and this new carton’s 33% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, along with its Carbon Neutral certification by the Carbon Trust™, is a significant achievement towards this goal.”

Ola Elmqvist, executive vice president of packaging solutions at Tetra Pak, added, “The development is a significant milestone in our ongoing efforts to design beverage cartons for recycling, setting the pace for the paperization of packaging. By partnering with Lactogal, we are demonstrating that it is possible to advance the sustainability of aseptic beverage cartons while ensuring food safety and enhancing food access.”
