Starting in August, UHT milk for Ninho, Ninho Levinho, Ninho Low Lactose and Molico brands will be packed in Tetra Brik Aseptic packages using caps produced with Green PE.
The new polyethylene, developed by Braskem, is made out of sugar cane derivatives, which are polymerised in plastics for cap production. The process contributes to the global reduction of greenhouse gases since sugar cane, a renewable resource, absorbs CO² from the atmosphere.
Ivan Zurita, president of Nestlé Brazil, said: “This is an innovating initiative that adds further value to our products. Our participation in this project is fully aligned with Nestlé’s global social responsibility platform, called ‘Creating Shared Value.'”
Tetra Pak recently announced an environmental programme designed to deliver on the company’s ultimate aim of providing sustainable packaging using only renewable materials, achieving a minimal environmental footprint and creating zero waste.
