New Tetra Pak package opens up ice cream opportunity for liquid dairy producers

tfa-ice-creamTetra Pak has launched the Tetra Fino® Aseptic 100 Ultra MiM, a new package that offers an opportunity for customers to produce liquid dairy and juice drinks using their existing production processes, and market them as ice creams and frozen products.

​The new package allows dairy and juice drinks to be produced and distributed in small carton pouches at room temperature, and subsequently turned into frozen products in shops or in a consumer’s home. This means producers can tap into the $72bn1 global ice cream market without the need for additional investment in production equipment and chilled distribution system.

Tetra Paks Sustainability Report 2017

Tetra Pak has published its 2017 Sustainability Report, highlighting the company’s annual progress and key achievements in the areas of environmental performance, social responsibility and corporate governance.

For the first time since it started publishing a Sustainability report in 2004, the company has adopted Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines, the most widely-used international framework for measuring and communicating sustainability performance.

Tetra Pak acquires Big Drum

Tetra Pak has acquired the Big Drum Engineering GmbH, a leading supplier of filling machines for the industry.

The deal further extends the company’s ability to provide end-to-end solutions for food and beverage companies around the world, and reinforces its global leadership in the sector.

Big Drum, which is based in Edertal, Germany, is a leading provider of medium-to-high capacity filling machines for the global ice cream market. It is a highly-respected supplier to major brands, and is recognized for its innovation, quality, and performance.

Tetra Pak launches ice cream extrusion line for medium-sized producers

In an industry first, the new line uses an independently controlled horizontal cutter to slice the ice cream as it emerges from the extruder. This patented technology means the cutting speed stays consistently fast, irrespective of the line speed, ensuring a precise, clean cut even at low rates of production.

By programming the cutter to operate at different speeds and movements, ice cream producers can also switch between multiple products on the same line, be they sticks, sandwiches, cones, wafer cups, candy bars or cakes, while maintaining the highest possible quality. With a capacity range of 5,000 to 18,000 products per hour, the line offers much-needed volume flexibility to medium-sized producers, allowing them to increase or decrease output without compromising efficiency.

New Tetra Pak High Shear Mixer

Tetra Pak® High Shear Mixer R370-1000VFeaturing a radical new design that produces finer, more consistent and more stable emulsions, the new R370-1000D reduces the need for downstream homogenisation, delivers a better quality end product and cuts energy bills.

The new mixer can also handle ingredients with up to 65% dry matter, the highest concentration for infant formula production. This cuts down the need for evaporation, another expensive step in food processing, slashing costs by up to 90%.

The mixing machine produces at a capacity of up to 30,000 litres per hour and can be applied in the production of liquid dairy and beverages, ice cream and prepared food, as well as for most pre-mixing needs in food manufacturing.

​Norrmejerier först i världen med extra klimatsmart förpackning

Norrmejerier byter till växtbaserad skruvkork på standard-, mellan- och lättmjölk. Ekologisk Mellanmjölk får en helt ny skruvkorksförpackning som till och med är mer klimateffektiv än förpackning utan kork.

Andelen förnybart material ökar från 82 till 92 procent med den nya skruvkorksförpackningen jämfört med tegelstenen utan kork. Kartongen kommer från ansvarsfullt odlad skog. Korken och den yttre filmen är gjorda av växtbaserad råvara. För att den inre vätskebarriären ska bli fossilfri krävs dock ytterligare materialutveckling.

Bioplast, eller växtbaserad plast, som används i förpackningar från Tetra Pak, tillverkas av sockerrör. I och med att råvaran är växtbaserad kan man förenklat säga att man återanvänder den koldioxid som redan finns i atmosfären.

First aseptic carton package to receive the highest class of Vinçotte certification

Tetra Pak announces the launch of a new version of Tetra Brik® Aseptic 1000 Edge with Bio-based LightCap™ 30. This is the first aseptic carton package in the world to receive the highest class of Vinçotte certification for its use of renewable materials.

The new package is manufactured using a bio-based plastic film and cap, made from polymers derived from sugar cane. Combined with the paperboard, this lifts the share of materials from renewable sources in the package to above 80%, the threshold for four-star certification from Vinçotte, the Belgium-based accreditation agency that is world-recognised for assessing the renewable content of packaging products.

Tetra Pak launches new water-free lubrication

Tetra Pak has expanded its Technical Services portfolio with the launch of a dry lubrication kit for packaging line conveyor belts and distribution equipment. The new solution helps customers cut water and electricity consumption, and reduce the man-hours required for machine maintenance.

​Traditional conveyor lubrication, known as wet lubrication, uses high quantities of water mixed with oil, leaving both the equipment and factory floor wet. With the new solution, the process is nearly dry. It does not require the use of water but just very small quantities of oil. A drop of food grade oil roughly the size of a pea is directly added to the conveyor belt to reduce its friction with the package.
