Tetra Pak Moving Toward Goal of All FSC-Labeled Cartons

Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Customers in Sweden, Denmark, and Belgium will soon get beverage cartons from Tetra Pak, Lausanne, Switzerland, that have the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) label. This year, Tetra Pak plans to supply about 600 million of the FSC-labeled packages to Swedish customers, about 270 million to Danish customers and 700 million to customers in Belgium.

Working toward a goal of putting the FSC label on all of its packages, Tetra Pak has already made the packages available in several countries, beginning with the introduction of the world's first FSC-labeled liquid food cartons in the U.K. in 2007. The FSC label indicates that the wood fibers in the package can be traced through the supply chain and that the paperboard used in the package comes from FSC-certified forests and other controlled sources.
