ACE UK, which represents Tetra Pak, Elopak, and SIG Combibloc, the leading manufacturers of paper-based beverage cartons for the UK market, has welcomed the new Dairy Roadmap Environmental Sustainability Report and the targets it contains for the beverage carton industry. The Roadmap has brought together the whole UK dairy supply chain; farmers, food manufacturers and retailers to agree a broad programme with hard, time-bound environmental sustainability targets. The beverage carton industry, through ACE UK, is a member of the Dairy Roadmap Taskforce, and has set its own new target. In welcoming the report, Richard Hands, Chief Executive of ACE UK, comments, “Our new Roadmap target is to ensure that, by 2015, at least 80% of dairy carton packages carry the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) label, demonstrating that the fibre used to make the package has been sourced from responsibly-managed forests.
