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 received 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, LDPE boosts the renewable material content in the package to around 78 percent. The package is also 100 percent recyclable.
