Lakeland Dairies, a leading Irish dairy co-operative, has launched a range of single and double creams packed in Tetra Top 250ml Carton Bottles.
Designed for the modern consumer, the carton is robust and lightweight and features a re-sealable, screw top lid, unlike traditional cream packaging solutions.
The lid has several advantages, it helps maintain freshness once the product has been opened and increases the ease of operability, pouring and storage. The screw top also has the benefit of a two-step opening, with an innovative spiral pull tab that keeps the contents secure and protected.
The products have an extended shelf-life of up to 60 days, which has storage benefits for both consumers and retailers. It also has an environmental profile; it is made primarily from FSC-certified paperboard, and is widely recyclable in the UK.
Commenting on the new range, Evan Scicluna, Product Manager of Lakeland Dairies said:
“We are really excited about this new range. We can’t believe that cream in cartons is so rare in the UK – it makes complete sense! It is much easier to use and store, and the re-sealable lid helps the cream stay fresh for longer.”
Andrew Smith, Marketing Manager at Tetra Pak, said:
“The Tetra Top 250ml Carton Bottle is one of our most innovative product designs, combining the convenience of a bottle with all the advantages of carton packaging, and I am delighted that Lakeland Dairies has chosen to use it.
“Its quick to open and easy to re-seal cap makes it perfect for carrying around or laying in the fridge, even after opening, making it the ideal choice for consumers at home and on the go.”
Morrisons is the first retailer to stock the Lakeland Dairies Cream range in the Tetra Top 250ml Carton Bottle.
