Creating the next big thing for nearly a century

The origins of today’s AR Packaging date to 1929, when Erik Akerlund and Ruben Rausing founded a business on the revolutionary idea of reshaping European retailing with pre-packed goods. Their drive for change has shaped the company ever since, leading to such well-known developments as the very first “Tetra Pak” for milk. It’s the same innovative spirit that continues to drive every element of what we do today.

 

Since implementing extensive operational changes in 2011, AR Packaging has been on an exciting journey of transformation. We have optimised our product offering, allowing us to focus on the development of sustainable and innovative new solutions that are once again reshaping the packaging business. At the same time, we have expanded our global presence through strategic acquisitions in Europe, Africa and Asia. This dual strategy is enabling us to better support our customers in all new ways.
