Tetra Pak to introduce more than three billion FSC™- labelled beverage cartons in Germany
Friday 25 June 2010Tetra Pak plans to offer 3.3 billion beverage cartons bearing the label of the Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC) within one year to customers in Germany starting in June. This represents about 50 percent of the annual production of Tetra Pak cartons in Germany.
“As a leading producer of food packaging we set standards for sustainable raw material sourcing. FSC certification represents another step in Tetra Pak’s ongoing commitment to support responsible forest management and drive environmental performance – and a milestone in reliable and informative package labelling,” said Sven Weidemann, managing director of Tetra Pak Germany and Switzerland.
“Our ultimate goal is to have all supply certified to the highest standard, currently set by FSC. We are committed to increasing the number of Tetra Pak beverage cartons made from FSC-certified material as the availability of certified board increases,” he said.
