Dairy company Lee Strand has announced that its fresh milk will be available in plant-based packaging — the first milk packaging in Ireland to be labelled as carbon neutral.

According to Tetra Pak, the Tetra Rex plant-based package is the world’s first and only fully renewable beverage carton. It is FSC-certified and made entirely of paperboard, from responsibly managed forests and other controlled sources. The plastic is plant-based, made from Bonsucro certified sugarcane.
