TETRA Pak has launched the Carton Bottle. It combines the best features of paper-based food carton packages and plastic bottles.
It is part of the Tetra Top packaging system and will initially be available in volumes between 500ml and 1000ml, for milk and juice-based products.
Each package is made from a sleeve of carton material and an injection moulded plastic top. This top is significantly elevated, and a screw cap fitted, to complete the bottle-like functionality.Photographic quality flexo-process printing is possible on all visible carton surfaces. There is a safety membrane beneath the screw cap and more than 50% of the material used to make each Carton Bottle is paper.
