Elopak launches aseptic Pure-Pak® cartons with Natural Brown Board

Elopak is taking a step forward with sustainable packaging and launching aseptic Pure-Pak® cartons made with Natural Brown Board. The new Natural Brown Board Pure-Pak® cartons are carbon neutral and introduced only one year after Elopak launched the first fresh gable top carton made from Natural Brown Board.

The aseptic Pure-Pak® cartons have one less layer and thereby retain the natural brown colour of the wood fibres which gives a visible fibre structure. This also results in reduced carbon footprint and reduced weight, providing a naturally different, sustainable and authentic package that meets demands from growing trends in ethical, ecological and organic products.
