Sweden-based dairy Skånemejerier has launched its new drinking yoghurt range in a new carton, the Top 330 Mini Nallo provided by Tetra Pak.
Skånemejerier is the first company to use Tetra Pak’s Top 330 Mini Nallo carton bottles in Sweden.
The bottles are equipped with a V-shaped panel on one corner and a resealable cap.
Skånemejerier sustainability manager Armina Nilsson said: “In the past, drinking yoghurt was packaged in plastic bottles, which has a far greater environmental impact than carton packages.
“Tetra Top Nallo is made mainly from paperboard from FSC certified forests?and other controlled sources.
“Switching 2.1 million packs of our drinking yoghurt means we are cutting the use of plastic by more than 45t a year.”
Tetra Top 330 Mini Nallo will be available for limited release to customers in early 2017, along with the Tetra Pak TT/3 XH IC filling line.
Tetra Pak product management and commercial operations executive vice-president Charles Brand said: “The new Tetra Top 330 Mini Nallo is one of our latest innovations for younger generations.
“It has taken all aspects of their needs into account: their increasing interest in the environment, their demand for an appealing appearance, and their desire for a convenient package that they can drink from, re-seal, and carry around while on the go.”
Last month, the company stated that it provided its Brik Aseptic 200 Slim Leaf package for Dos Pinos’ new dairy products.
