Mornings are tough around here. It’s usually an exercise of funneling chaos into a manageable stream. This year, that routine has taken on a whole new level with each kid heading to a different school at different times. If I’m lucky, it’s a straight path to the door for each of them. But that’s not our way. Nope. Most days we are navigating a switchback route for forgotten and misplaced things. Earlier this week it was annotated book for the teenager and filled out index cards for the 7-year-old. These unplanned detours chip away 15 minutes of a morning routine that’s already pressed for time.

Lucky for them, short on time, doesn’t mean skipping over breakfast. Morning meals during the week usually consist of something light with a nutrient-packed protein shake in a Tetra Pak® carton. And on mornings when multi-tasking needs to be a spill-proof operation, the packaging makes lifting sofa cushions with one hand while sipping down breakfast with the other a mess-free task.
In fact, given a choice between buying food and drinks in Tetra Pak cartons vs. others, I always reach for their aseptic packaging. That said, I’m excited to tell you, I’m working with Tetra Pak for the remainder of the year. They are a world’s leading food processing and packaging solutions company. It’s a passion partnership that I’m super pumped about. To kick start this partnership, I attended a virtual event they hosted a few weeks ago. The event covered several things that I will be sharing in some upcoming posts, including how Tetra Pak is committed to make food safe and available, everywhere.
I’m betting that most of you are familiar with Tetra Pak, even if you do not directly know it. If you have kids and pack Horizon milk cartons in their lunches, you are likely a Tetra Pak consumer. If you consume Vita Coco Coconut Water, you are likely a Tetra Pak consumer. But Tetra Pak doesn’t just package liquid foods and drinks. It also processes and packages other food products from ice cream, to cheese, fruit and vegetables to pet food.
See that logo above? That logo is on all of Tetra Pak’s packaging. It’s a promise that the product inside has been packed to protect the nutritional value and taste while providing a shelf life of 6 months or more without the need for refrigeration or preservatives. To maintain that standard, Tetra Pak aspetic cartons are formed from several layers of materials selected for their strength, protective qualities and sustainability.
Protecting the food is great, but doing that hand-in hand with protecting the planet is even better. Tetra Pak’s aim is to create cartons made solely from plant-based materials that are fully renewable and carbon neutral.
Now that you know what’s behind the logo on so many of your pantry staples, stay tuned as I’ll be sharing more ways Tetra Pak is impacting the way we eat and how they are working to create a stronger food supply for all.
Of course I switched gears mid post, but you know how it goes around here. Kids, life and work have a way crashing into one another like that. It usually works out, kinda—the teen found his book, but in the process of rushing out the front door he grabbed my lap top instead of his. Gah!
