Dr. Ruben Rausing was the founder of Tetra Pak. He was born in Raus, near Helsingborg, Sweden. He graduated from the Stockholm School of Economics in 1918 at the end of World War I. By 1920, he had earned his Master of Science Degree from Columbia University, in New York.
During his studies in the USA, Ruben Rausing received his first exposure to “self-service” stores. He could see that this concept would be adopted in Europe, thus increasing the demand for pre-packaged goods. In 1929, the year of the Wall Street stock market crash that triggered the Great Depression, he and Erik Åkerlund founded Scandinavia’s first specialised factory for packaging in Sweden. The firm, Åkerlund & Rausing, was to become one of the largest packaging manufacturers in Europe, and it was within this company that the first steps in development of a carton for milk took place.
