Dairy cooperative TINE SA has contacted the Norwegian authorities after a report in a local newspaper Dagens Næringsliv (DN) claimed to have exposed an improper supplier relationship between TINE and Tetra Pak.
Tetra Pak has partnered with DTU (Technical University of Denmark) and several Danish research institutions to study X-ray tomography for cartons as part of a €10.5m ($11.5m) project called LINX (Linking Industry to Neutrons and X-rays).
Tetra Pak’s gable top, which was first introduced in Europe as Tetra Rex Bio-based last year, has been launched in the US and expects to deliver more than 100 million of the renewable packages globally in 2016.
The Alliance for Beverage Cartons and the Environment (ACE) UK, which represents Tetra Pak, Elopak, and SIG Combibloc, has announced it will become a joint owner of OPRL, which runs the UK’s on-pack recycling label scheme.
RPC Superfos has won two Scanstar awards in the annual Nordic packaging competition, for its EasySnacking pot on-the-go and bespoke panna cotta with fruit sauce, developed for Finnish dairy producer Valio.
