We use Tetra Pak packaging to package and keep our bone broths safe and fresh. The Tetra Pak packaging offers many advantages and here we shall outline some of them.
The most important aspect of the Tetra Pak’s advantages is its guaranteed safety. Packing a sterile product in a sterile container is what ensures a complete aseptic environment, delivering a completely safe product for the customer.
The main building materials of a Tetra Pak package are a paper carton, a very thin aluminum foil, and a thin polyethylene film, using pure paraffin as a food-safe glue. The Tetra Pak company strives to procure all the raw materials from sustainable sources.
Aluminum is a material that can be recycled a countless number of times making recycled aluminum a very sustainable product. The aluminum film is as thin as possible – eight times thinner than a human hair – this is the essential ingredient that protects the content from oxygen and light, keeping the content fresh for months and in some cases, even years.
All the polymer materials used in the Tetra Pak package come from natural sources – wood and sugarcane are the main raw materials.
The raw materials for the paper carton comes from sustainable forests where the cutting of the forests is controlled and their growth and reforestation are guaranteed. Trees are the best renewable source of materials as they grow back!
Another important part of the Tetra Pak package is the polyethylene film which is derived from sugarcane. The company sources this material from a very renewable and sustainable source of sugarcane from Brazil, ensuring the low environmental impact.
With the rapid development of technology, today it is possible to recycle used Tetra Pak containers. The used containers get successfully recycled back to their building materials; mainly aluminum and paraffin.
All these reasons make the Tetra Pak package a very good, aseptic, sustainable, and environmentally friendly package, and these are the reasons why we have selected it to pack our bone broths in.
