Tetra Pak, the world's leading food processing and packaging solutions company, will begin supplying carton packages in Switzerland bearing the Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC) label. Starting with a range of packages for Coop stores later this month, Tetra Pak plans to offer around 340 million FSC™-labelled packages to Swiss customers next year, representing around 60 percent of its annual sales in this market.

The launch of FSC-labelled cartons in Switzerland marks another step towards Tetra Pak’s goal of having all its packages bear the FSC label, which is today considered the highest standard for the sustainable sourcing of wood fibres. The FSC label aims to assure consum-ers that the wood fibres in the package are traceable all the way through the supply chain back to the forest and that the paperboard used in the package comes from FSC-certified forests and other controlled sources.
