FrieslandCampina launches “innovative plant material” cardboard liter pack
FrieslandCampina’s long-keeping chocolate milk brand, Chocomel, is set to be packaged in a new, innovative cardboard liter pack made up of 80 percent raw plant material from Tetra Pak. The move places Chocomel as the first product to be packed in the liter pack, of which wood and sugar are the parent materials.
The cartons’ 80 percent plant material make-up consists of cardboard made from wood that is 100 percent sourced from FSC-certified forests. The plastic cap and the outer plastic layer of the iconic yellow-colored pack are made from plants. The materials are based on waste plant material that is leftover once all the edible parts have been taken out, further enhancing the packaging as sustainable with a nod towards the circular economy.
