INNOVATIVE: Launching Ireland’s first 100% Renewable 2 Litre milk carton are Lee Strand farmers Sophie Culloty (11) and Liam (8).

Lee Strand’s innovation and leadership in the marketplace continues as they launched Ireland’s first 100% renewable 2 litre milk carton. It follows the successful launch of Lee Strand’s 100% renewable 1 litre carton in October last year. Produced by Tetra Pak, the carton is recognised as the world’s first fully renewable pack and has won many prestigious international awards. The plant-based carton and cap are also 100% recyclable.

“Lee Strand’s €2 million manufacturing investment is a major step forward in the development of truly sustainable packaging and reinforces our commitment to protecting the environment," Gearoid Linnane, CEO of Lee Strand said.

"The trend in the marketplace indicates there is a shift away from plastic and this will continue if new levies on single use plastic are introduced. Customers are more environmentally conscious, and we are delighted to be a step ahead of the curve offering consumers a choice now when making their 2 litre milk purchases.”

To celebrate the launch, customers will be given the chance to win €1,000 if Lee Strand’s new 100% Renewable 2 litre milk carton is in your fridge!
