Arla is this week launching a plant-based carton for its product A38 as part of its pledge to use sustainable packaging.

Elopak and Tetrapak makes the new carton from wood and plants, thus leaving out the bleaching process and the white chalk layer that is usually applied to common white cartons.

Huge cuts
Some 16 million cartons of the product are sold every year, and the move should cut 128,000 kilos of CO2 emissions, according to the company’s estimations.

Arla hopes such moves will help it reach its targets of a 30 percent reduction by 2030 and zero emissions by 2050.
