FrieslandCampina Goes Bioplastics

FrieslandCampina will use plant based plastic for the bottle cap and outer layer of its chocolate milk packaging

FrieslandCampina’s issued a press release to inform the public that hey have changed their chocolate milk packaging. The chocolate milk brand, Chocomel, will use new cardboard packaging. The packaging is produced by Tetra Pak and represents 40 millions bottles per year.

Statement from FrieslandCampina

Chocomel is the first brand worldwide to opt for innovative packaging of more than 80 percent plant-based materials. The packaging will be made up of 80 % of raw plant material. The materials are based on waste plant material that is leftover once all the edible parts have been taken out. By crossing the 80 % threshold, FrieslandCampina achieves the 4-star certificate from Vinçotte’s certification program named Ok Biobased. In comparison to the old packaging, the new pack saves 17 % CO2, according to the independent Swedish environmental research institute IVL.
