The First Aseptic Carton Bottle Makes Its U.S. Debut

After a successful European launch, the groundbreaking Tetra Evero carton bottle, from Tetra Pak (tetrapakusa.com), is now available to U.S. beverage producers. With its iconic bottle shape, 360° printable surface and superior environmental profile, Tetra Evero is the ideal package for beverage brands that want to stand out and capture consumer attention, whether on the shelf or in the chilled case.

“Tetra Evero is a great way for brands to reinforce their sustainability commitment while meeting consumers’ nutritional and lifestyle needs,” says Carmen Becker, president and CEO of Tetra Pak U.S. and Canada. “The package has seen great success across Europe, and we’re thrilled we can now offer it to U.S. beverage producers.”

Tetra Evero delivers the functionality of a traditional bottle with the environmental benefits of a carton. It is lightweight, recyclable and made mainly from a renewable resource: wood fiber from well-managed FSC®-certified forests. As an aseptic package, Tetra Evero can be stored, shipped and merchandised ambiently or chilled, opening a broad range of possibilities for beverage producers. The multi-layer packaging material also preserves product quality and nutrition without the need for preservatives or refrigeration.

Tetra Evero packages are formed, sterilized and filled in the state-of-the-art Tetra Pak A6 filling machine, which is also making its U.S. debut. A unique gas-phase sterilization technique developed specifically for Tetra Evero ensures product safety and shelf-stability. The world’s fastest direct injection molding technology—and the first seen in an aseptic packaging system—creates the unique bottle-shaped top. The efficient Tetra Pak A6 takes up half the space of an aseptic PET line.

The first Tetra Pak A6 in the U.S. is installed at Gossner Foods, a contract manufacturer in Logan, Utah.
