'PROTECTS WHAT'S GOOD' is our brand promise, defining and influencing everything we do. It encompasses the importance of protecting food, protecting people and protecting futures, for which driving environmental excellence is fundamental.
Beverage cartons are made from a material called liquid paperboard (LPB), which is constructed from paperboard with layers of plastic, and in the case of long-life products, a thin layer of aluminium foil. Paperboard makes up the largest proportion of these materials - about 88% of Tetra Pak 1 litre fresh milk carton for example.
For more than 40 years LPB has been used to package a wide range of foods including milk, juices, cream, custard, sauces and soups.
Container deposit recycling
Flavoured milk and juice cartons under 1ltr are accepted for recycling in states that have container deposit schemes. This includes both long life and LPB cartons. Check your local scheme for what's accepted in your area.
