Distribution equipmentWe can offer our customers a range of different types of distribution equipment – including conveyors, tray packers, film wrappers, crates and roll containers – all of which are developed, produced and marketed by Tetra Pak.
Tetra Recart® is a carton packaging system with remarkable potential. This is an alter-native packaging solution for a variety of food products that have traditionally been packed in cans or glass jars, including fruits, vegetables and pet food.
The Tetra Brik® package was introduced in 1963. It is rectangular or square in shape and available with a large number of different openings. The Tetra Brik® Aseptic carton, which was introduced in 1969, is the most frequently used package for long-life products.
Every day, across the world billions of litres of water, milk, juice and other liquid foods are consumed. At Tetra Pak, we have developed a range of packages to protect both the nutritional value and the taste of the products inside. Thanks to Tetra Pak technology, the packaging and dis-tribution of liquid products to the consumer has been greatly facilitated.
“A package should save more than it costs.”
This was the tenet of the founder of Tetra Pak, Dr. Ruben Rausing, who initiated the development of the tetrahedron shaped package. The fundamental idea was to form a tube from a roll of plastic-coated paper, fill it with the beverage and seal it below the level of the liquid. Today, Tetra Pak offers much more than just packaging equipment for liquid food products. We also provide a range of processing and packaging technologies for use with a broad array of products, from ice cream and cheese to fruit, vegetables and pet food. And we have a range of package alternatives, with 12 different systems in our portfolio.
We supply complete systems for processing, packaging and distribution, designed to optimise the use of resources. Our processing systems are not only developed to treat the products gently, but also to minimise the use of raw materials and energy during manufacture and subsequent distribution.
We are committed to reducing the environmental impact of our operations and to enhancing the environmental performance of our products and solutions, including the continued development of environmentally efficient packages that protect food and prevent it from being wasted.
Aseptic packagingOur aseptic packaging systems have funda-mentally changed the handling of sensitive liquid foods. Distribution and storage no longer require refrigeration, and the shelf life of the package contents is considerably extended. The need for aseptic packaging is rapidly increasing and the system has proved invaluable in the distribution of milk and other liquid food products.
Today, two thirds of the packages from Tetra Pak are aseptic.

Bio-based cap and neck
PaperboardMore than 80%
In late 2014, when we introduced the world’s first fully renewable package – the Tetra Rex®
Bio-based package – we knew it would attract attention, and it did. Manufactured solely from a combination of bio-based plastics, derived from sugarcane, and FSC™-certified paperboard, the product has picked up an array of prizes and distinctions during its first year on the market:• First place in the Sustainable Innova-
tion category at the Ethical Corporation Responsible Business Awards.
• The Special Environment Prize for 2015 from the Italian Packaging Institute, in partnership with the Polytechnic University of Milan.
• A Gold award at the inaugural Pro2Pac Excellence Awards in March.
• The prize for “most environmentally friendly product of the year” from the Green Star Packaging Awards in May.
Finally, the package was awarded the high-est category of bio-based certification from internationally recognized assessment body, Vincotte.
Even more importantly, customer feedback has been very positive, with early adopters looking to expand the use of Tetra Rex Bio-based to other products, and strong demand from new customers. The company expects to deliver more than 100 million packs during 2016.
Tetra Pak Processing has set up four strate-gic competence areas to drive innovation: cleaning technology; mixing, blending and dosing: food safety; and heat treatment technologies. Each area has a network of technology specialists who share knowledge within our organisation and with customers.
One example of how our focus on key competencies has spurred innovation comes from our Dairy category, where our expertise in mixing, blending and dosing led to the creation of OneStep™ processing technol-ogy. Since its launch in 2010, the technology has transformed UHT milk production, providing an effective single-step process that eliminates the need for pasteurisation pre-treatment and intermediate storage.
Last year, the company extended the application of OneStep technology to milk
production from powder, allowing produc-ers, for the first time ever, to prepare UHT milk from powder in one continuous step. The main benefit is an unbeatably low op-erational cost, partly due to energy savings (tests showed -31%), and partly to reducing the number and size of storage tanks, which incur less cleaning and maintenance. Product changeovers become much easier, as well.
In another example, our heat treatment experts ran extensive experiments on foods containing particles, such as chunks of fruit, vegetables, meat or nuts. Results showed that heat treatment system designs can be optimized to new heat transfer models. We estimate potential savings of 20% in operational cost, in addition to savings in capital expenditures.
As a global company with many local opera-tions, we are well placed to act as a catalyst in bringing together various stakeholders to drive projects and initiatives that make a positive difference.
Our expertise in food protection and our strong relationships with a broad range of organisations in many markets have helped us develop practical solutions to local problems.
In communities around the world, Tetra Pak leads initiatives to educate consumers about milk safety and nutrition. For example, in South Africa, Morocco, Turkey, and the Caucasus, we are pro-moting the benefits of UHT milk while raising awareness of the risks of loose milk.
Our Food for Development scheme supports school feed-ing programmes in Bangladesh and elsewhere, and our Dairy Hubs model helps secure sustain-able supplies of locally produced quality milk in Bangladesh and Nicaragua.
We play an active role at the local level, helping people develop themselves and their communities. Schools and students are key to these efforts. For example, in India, we partner with Coca-Cola to support expanding access to rural education. Our LEADearthSHIP initiative in Pune and Delhi is mentoring college students committed to sustainable development. And in Portugal, Spain and Turkey, we support schoolchildren as they explore fun ways to recycle.
Tetra Pak Processing – competence-based innovation

Sourcing beverages and prepared foods to Mercadona, Spain’s largest and most innovative retail chain, is a tall order. As a key supplier, DAFSA wanted to ensure control, competitiveness and flexibility for its future production. To achieve this, they embarked on the largest joint Packaging/Processing project of its kind in Europe, investing more than €38 million to create a facility with eight processing lines and nine packaging lines with a daily capacity of 4.3 million packages of beverages and prepared foods.
Tetra Pak was contracted to design and build every aspect of the greenfield fac-tory in Segorbe, Spain, from raw mate-rial reception to warehouse. At its heart is Tetra PlantMaster™, which manages every aspect of the fully automated plant, from processing to shipping, while seamlessly connecting to enterprise resource planning and other programs. Key information is avail-
able everywhere in real time. This enables DAFSA to comply with Mercadona’s efficiency and flexibility requirements while providing full control and excellence in food safety.
The new facility improves DAFSA’s com-petitiveness by replacing three production sites with a single, fully flexible mega-plant, enabling future growth through capacity expansion and product innovation. The plant is multiproduct and multiformat, able to handle more than 80 products and 300 recipes – from juices and smoothies to gazpacho and dairy alternatives.
According to DAFSA, Tetra Pak exceeded expectations on every score: project plan-ning, scheduling and execution, providing a unique value and service.
In addition to delivering the new facility, Tetra Pak has also established an integrated maintenance contract with DAFSA, guaran-teeing to meet performance targets agreed between the two companies.
