Manufactured at Tetra Pak’s Châteaubriant plant in France, the new caps integrating attributed recycled polymers have been chosen by Elle & Vire, the French cream brand and part of Elvir’s portfolio
Tetra Pak, in partnership with Elvir, a subsidiary of Savencia Fromage & Dairy has become the first carton packaging player in the food and beverage industry to launch a cap using certified recycled polymers.
This move marks a key step in both companies’ progress towards circularity. By helping to find an economically sound use for plastic waste and responsibly sourcing raw materials, Tetra Pak and Elvir continue to minimise their dependency on virgin, fossil-based resources.
Elle & Vire chose the HeliCap™ 23 cap solution to complement its cream products, which are distributed in Tetra Brik® Aseptic 1L Slim carton packages. This one-step resealable screwcap is manufactured at Tetra Pak’s Châteaubriant plant in Loire-Atlantique, France – a site that has been awarded the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB) Advanced Products certification and boosted by a €100 million investment to accelerate the transition to the production of tethered caps.
The HeliCap™ 23 cap offers consumers ease of opening and features a clearly visible tamper evidence ring, providing reassurance that the product hasn’t been opened before.
