Disposing a milk packet with the name Nurpur

Q: On a milk packet I see the name Nurpur almost daily. When I want to discard the packet, I thought the word Nurpur contains the name Nur, similar to Noor which is a sacred name. Should I discard it after I tear the name into pieces or what should I do?

A: This is not the name of Allah Ta'ala, Hence, it is permissible for you to dispose of it.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
