Tetra Pak carton packages are designed for maximum efficiency and environmental friendliness.  Tetra Pak cartons are made of 70% paper from selectively harvested, re-grown trees that are FSC-certified (Forest Stewardship Council).  Cartons use 1/3 of the packaging compared to cans…or even an egg!  Cartons are space saving, easy to store and open. Keep your pantry neat and toss your can openers. , stackable and space saving.  I also love that cumsy old me can even drop these and don't have to worry about the mess!  That feature is also a lifesaver if you have kids!

The unique packaging process also preserves the flavor and nutrients of food without the use of preservatives.  The cartons are recycleable and result in 60% less landfill waste than cans.  Best of all, the cartons are re-closable so you can use what you need and save the rest for later.
