Tetra Pak, a world-leading food processing and packaging solutions company, is acknowledged for its commitment to environmental sustainability. On this journey towards building a more sustainable planet, Tetra Pak India has launched the ‘Go nature Go Carton’ campaign to draw attention towards climate change and the company’s efforts to address these issues through sustainable products and solutions.  

The company aims to create the world’s most sustainable package, made solely from responsibly sourced renewable or recycled materials, fully recyclable and carbon neutral. With clear goals for a sustainable future that include 100% renewable packages by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2050, this campaign shares the steps being taken on this journey.

Ashutosh Manohar, managing director, Tetra Pak South Asia, says, “By 2050, the world’s population is predicted to reach 9.1 billion, which will require 70% more food availability. Packaging helps keep food safe, nutritious, and available. And, with 33% of food lost or wasted each year, high-performance packaging plays a critical role in today’s global food delivery system. We believe that sustainable food processing and packaging solutions can make a difference, feeding a growing population while helping mitigate climate. With Go Nature Go Carton, we are accelerating our mission to create the world’s most sustainable food package.”

Tetra Pak’s journey to develop a new sustainable food package includes increasing the use of materials that reduce the impact on nature, thereby increasing the paper-based and plant-based content in Tetra Pak’s packages. This also includes sourcing raw materials in a way that protects biodiversity and natural environments. Tetra Pak is also focused on increasing recycling supported by a robust collection, sorting, and recycling infrastructure.

The company asserts that it is critical to look beyond just the end-of-life impact of packaging. “To assess the environmental impact fairly, we must consider the entire life-cycle from sourcing to production, distribution, and end-of-life. Only through a holistic environmental approach that considers radical decarbonization of materials can we truly reduce the impact on the planet,” adds Ashutosh.

 

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
