Tetra Pak has pledged to support the European Commission’s Plastics Strategy, announced as part of the EU Action Plan for a Circular Economy.

The company will:

  • Work with industry partners to ensure that by 2030, recycling solutions are in place for all components of beverage cartons so they can be fully recycled across Europe;
  • Substantially increase the use of plastics made from renewable feedstock;
  • Use recycled plastics once they are validated as safe and are legally acceptable for use as a food contact material

Dennis Jönsson, President and CEO of Tetra Pak, says: “Although around 75% of our packaging is made from paperboard, we also use plastics as a protective layer and to produce the package openings. The EU’s Plastics Strategy is an important step towards a low-carbon Circular Economy based on recycling, renewables and responsible sourcing, and we are ready to make our contribution as a leading food processing and packaging provider.”
