Tetra Prisma Aseptic 1000 with bio-based plastic, first used by Coca Cola’s Del Valle Reserva, received a gold award for sustainability at the WorldStar awards in Milan, Italy on 19 May.
The package, together with Tetra Top with Separable Top, had earlier picked up WorldStar awards in the beverage category.
It uses low density polyethylene derived from sugar cane as the laminate film in the packaging material. When combined with Forest Stewardship Council-certified paperboard, this boosts the renewable material content in the package to around 78%.
The package is also 100% recyclable.
