Organic Meadow has partnered with global packaging leader, Elopak, to launch North America's first, and only, carbon-neutral milk carton. Today, Organic Meadow, a Guelph-based farmer-owned co-operative, announced that it has transitioned its two-litre organic milk to Elopak's carbon-neutral paperboard milk carton, Pure-Pak natural brown board. This sustainable package is the first carbon-neutral carton of its kind in North America, after successful launches in European markets.
"As Canada's original organic dairy, Organic Meadow's history is rooted in sustainability," says Nancy Korva, Senior Vice-President of Organic Meadow. "For over 30 years, we've been on a journey to build a more circular future, and our new, zero-carbon milk carton brings us one step closer to this goal."
Organic Meadow zero-carbon two-litre Organic Milk Cartons are available in five varieties—3.8%, 2%, 1%, skim milk and lactose-free milk—and can now be found across Ontario at major grocers and health food stores including Metro, Longo's and Whole Foods.
