Europe: Sweden sees drinking yoghurt in cartons

Swedish drinking yoghurt company Skånemejerier has launched products in Tetra Top 330 Mini Nallo, a first for the country.

“In the past, drinking yoghurt was packaged in plastic bottles, which has a far greater environmental impact than carton packages,” said Armina Nilsson, sustainability manager at Skånemejerier.​

“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 45 tons a year.”

“This move is part of our wider commitment to care for animals and nature, and we are delighted that consumers are responding in a very supportive way.”

“Consumer tests proved that they prefer these carton bottles to plastic packages, particularly from an environmental perspective.”

With a V-shaped panel on one corner, Tetra Top Nallo allows brand owners to highlight their messages in the packaging design and make their product stand out on the shelf.

At the same time, its tall and slender proportions offer the consumer an easy grip, while the wide opening makes the drinking experience smoother.

In addition, the cap is a one-step opening and can be resealed securely.

Tetra Top 330 Mini Nallo will be featured at the Tetra Pak booth during Gulfood Manufacturing 2016, which will take place from November 7 to 9 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

The product will start to be available for limited release to customers early next year with the Tetra Pak TT/3 XH IC filling line​.
