Central Lechera Asturiana launches the new design of its traditional milk Tetrapak cartons with a simplified graphic design that affirms the brand’s commitment to being transparent with consumers by showing the ingredients on the front and clearly visible.

The front of the carton, along with the iconic Central Lechera Asturiana landscape, also highlights the Spanish origin of the milk from family farms located in the towns and rural areas that they care for and protect for the benefit of everyone.

This new line will be progressively added to the other references in the Central Lechera Asturiana milk range.


Caring for the environment is part of Central Lechera Asturiana’s mission. In addition to protecting natural environments, the dairy firm is committed to further improving its carton design to make it more sustainable. In fact, since 2022, its cartons have been certified carbon-neutral by AENOR, as they contain plant-origin materials. This means that the plastic used in the cap and some of the layers ensuring its preservation are derived from sugar cane. 

Additionally, 100% of the cardboard comes from sustainable and FSC-accredited sources, which implies that they come from sustainable forests that are managed to guarantee the biodiversity, profitability and well-being of the local communities involved in their production and maintenance.

Central Lechera Asturiana is the first Spanish dairy company to have obtained the B CORP seal for generating a positive impact on society and the planet through its activity and through fulfilling its purpose. Committed to farmers and to producing 100% natural products, Central Lechera Asturiana is also the leading dairy brand in Spain and a leader in liquid milk, cream and butter sales.
