At Purearth Foods, we understand that we have a responsibility to care
for our environment. We measure our environmental performance by our
waste reduction, our adoption of technologies that take full advantage
of innovations within our industry, our use of alternative energy and our
investment in renewable resources.
We partner with Tetra Pak® to provide our packaging material, given
cartons have the lowest climate change impact compared to glass,
HDPE and PET. Options are available to drive the renewable
content of these packages up to 87%.

Our Tetra Pak® processing and packaging equipment is designed to
minimise waste and decrease water consumption. We use the latest
technology to optimise energy use and reduce emissions to produce
eco-friendly products with a smaller carbon footprint.
Purearth Foods and Tetra Pak® have
engaged in a unique partnership
to offer the only fully integrated
Tetra Pak® manufacturing facility
in Australia, showcasing the
latest technology from Europe for
processing and traceability.
Tetra Pak® was founded on the idea
that a package should save more than it
costs. Armed with this mindset today,
they are committed to reducing the
environmental footprint of products

FSC ENDORSED PAPER
The Forest Stewardship Council™ is an independent, non-governmental, not
for profit organisation established to promote the responsible management
of the world’s forests. The paper used in Tetra Pak® packaging is sourced from
sustainably managed forests.
Options are available to increase the renewable content of our packages
utilising plant-based (sugar Cane) for our caps and packaging layers.
Another great way to improve sustainability outcomes!
Our Tetra Pak® cartons are fully recyclable, often turned into value added
products — reducing the amount of material going into landfill, and further
reducing our climate impact.
Independent research has confirmed that cartons have the lowest impact
on climate change compared to glass and other plastic formats.
This results from being produced mainly from plants (paperboard), lightweight, and
highly efficient through the supply chain. Introducing plant-based caps and polymers
reduces this impact even further.
Using renewable materials means we can continue to supply safe products in packaging
that protects the food, forests and our planet for future generations.
