Tetra Pak, Vernon Hills, Ill., produced what is said to be the first fully renewable gable top package in the United States. This bio-based package is made solely from renewable materials, defined as natural resources that can be replenished over time, and is developed from a combination of paperboard and sugar cane-derived plastics.

First introduced in Europe in January 2015 as Tetra Rex bio-based, the new Tetra Pak gable top bio-based package was specially adapted for the U.S. market.

Tetra Pak customers using the standard half-gallon gable top with or without closure can easily transition to the new bio-based version without the need for additional investment or modification to existing filling machines.
