Our Packaging

We’re extremely proud that over 90% of the packaging we use is recyclable, and we are actively working to make it 100% by 2020. We constantly challenge our suppliers to ensure that packaging we’re provided is sourced sustainably and is completely recyclable.

Take a look at where some of our packaging comes from below, and how you can ensure that it’s disposed of properly once you’re done with it.

Tetra Pak Cartons

The Tetra carton is a truly iconic pack in the Brownes Dairy product portfolio. Some of the products we package in Tetra Paks include white milk, cream and flavoured milk. In fact, when we launched WA’s first chocolate milk in 1951 it was in a triangle shaped Tetra Pak!

How to recycle?

Tetra Paks are made of card and are recyclable. Be sure to wash them out and flatten them before putting them in your recycling bin.

HDPE Bottles

Our HDPE bottles are our most used packaging, as they’re used for the majority of our white milk and for some of our flavoured milk. We source our HDPE bottles from Viscount Plastics, and like us they are a committed signatory to the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation and have a dedicated environmental policy.

How to recycle?

Ensure you wash out the bottle with water, squash the bottle down and then re-attach the lid before putting it in your recycling bin.

Yoghurt Pouches

Our delicious natural yoghurt pouches are a favourite with WA children, and ours are the only pouches in WA that are both made and sold here. We source our pouches from the Pact Group, who have a robust and comprehensive waste management and sustainability policy.

Yoghurt Tubs

Similar to our pouches, our yoghurt tubs are sourced from Alto, also part of the Pact Group. The cardboard ‘fans’ on the outside of our yoghurt tubs are made from recycled paper that is responsibly sourced, and every component of our tubs is recyclable.

How to recycle?

Completely remove the foil lid and scrunch it into a tight ball (this helps with sorting in recycling facilities). Remove the fan from the plastic tub and place the fan, tub and ball of foil into your recycling bin. Be sure to wash the tub out before you do to avoid contamination.
