The Tetra Pak is one of the most used drinks containers in the world.
It is a clever combination of cardboard lined with metal that gave a brilliant alternative to the glass milk bottles of the time.
The Tetra Pak got it’s name from it’s original shape which was a Tetrahedron. You can still get this style packaging with some ice lollies, but most Tetra Paks now have more regular shapes.
