French cream capped by Tetra Pak
Tetra Pak’s new caps integrating attributed recycled polymers have been chosen by French cream brand Elle & Vire, part of Elvir’s portfolio.
The HeliCap 23 cap solution was chosen to complement the company’s cream products, which are distributed in Tetra Brik Aseptic 1 L Slim carton packages. This one-step resealable screwcap is manufactured at Tetra Pak’s Châteaubriant plant in France.
Designed to provide easy opening, the caps feature a clearly visible tamper evidence ring.
They are manufactured under the RSB chain of custody attribution method, which means that the plastics are made of a mix of recycled and non-recycled materials, with the corresponding mass of recycled materials tracked throughout the Tetra Pak supply chain. This is verified by a third-party auditor according to the RSB Chain of Custody Procedure, which forms part of the RSB Advanced Products certification.
This move marks a key step in both companies’ progress towards circularity and minimising their dependency on virgin, fossil-based resources.
“Deploying cartons integrating attributed recycled polymers represents a key step in our journey towards the ultimate sustainable food package, one that is fully made of responsibly sourced renewable or recycled materials, fully recyclable and carbon neutral,” said Chakib Kara, Managing Director France & Benelux at Tetra Pak.
