Elopak informed that Centrale del Latte d’Italia S.p.A ., the third largest dairy in Italy, will introduce the company’s carbon neutral cartons. According to the announcement, in March 2017 the dairy launches its fresh milk products from regional brands Latte Tigullio and Tapporosso in 1 litre and 500 ml carbon neutral Pure-Pak® cartons.

In total, eleven new pack designs have been created for the carbon neutral Pure-Pak® cartons across both the Latte Tigullio and Tapporosso brands. Full- and half skimmed milk can be found in 500ml and 1 litre Pure-Pak® cartons, while skimmed milk is available in the 500ml cartons.

Marco Luzzati, Sales and Marketing Director, Centrale del Latte d’Italia, commented:

“As a food producer we are increasingly aware of consumer interest in the carbon footprint of product manufacturing processes and packaging. As with industries and economies across the world, the goal of carbon neutrality throughout our entire supply chain is a major part of our overall environmental strategy – and Elopak has enabled us to make a huge leap with our shared carbon neutral vision.”

Centrale del Latte d’Italia S.p.A. – a company listed on the STAR division of Borsa Italiana, the producer of fresh milk, milk products and ultra-fresh products – was created on October 1, 2016 through the merger of Centrale del Latte di Firenze, Pisa, Pistoia e Livorno S.p.A. into Centrale del Latte di Torino & C. S.p.A. It is the third-largest milk and dairy hub in Italy in terms of volumes sold, with an aggregated turnover of around EUR  180 million. The new Group is concentrated mainly in the Piemonte, Liguria, Tuscany and Veneto regions of Italy.

Earlier Elopak informed that the company becomes a CarbonNeutral® and exclusively offers CarbonNeutral® packaging to its customers.
