Tetra Pak is the world’s leading food processing and packaging solutions company. With over 20,000 employees in over 150 countries, the Swedish corporation manufactures around 158 billion packaging units every year. One of its major European production facilities is located in Limburg. The 319 employees there produce around 4.2 billion cartons every year.
“A packaging should save more than it costs,” is the motto of the man who founded the company in the 1950s, Ruben Rausing. It was an early commitment to cost-effectiveness, social responsibility and environmental friendliness that today still forms the basis of the company’s business policy. The beverage cartons offer maximum product protection at minimum energy and material utilization; a process that is both cost-effective and environmentally friendly. The cartons are predominantly made of the regenerative raw material of wood. Resource conservation and climate protection are Tetra Pak’s number one priorities. For example, the two German production plants in Limburg and Berlin and the headquarters in Hochheim are already entirely hydro powered.
Tetra Pak’s slogan is: “Protects what’s good”. It expresses the fact that beverage cartons protect both the content and the environment.
