Tetra Pak: “Online grocery shopping is growing at a double-digit rate”

Online grocery shopping is growing at a double-digit rate, while traditional stores are being reinvented, merging together into an omnichannel where consumers expect to be able to buy whenever, wherever and however they choose, with the smartphone as their compass. Packaging will play an important role in response to the trends that are shaping the growth of on-line grocery, says the company.

The Tetra Pak Index 2018 highlights the four key trends shaping the growth of on-line grocery:

  • Convenience The main driver for on-line consumer take-up, as time-crunched consumers look for new ways to make their life easier. Key opportunities include easy product replenishment, voice, and convenient packaging
  • Sustainability Pressure on plastic and awareness of the circular economy will continue to grow, and recycling will become ever more important. Consumers want to know whether brands are ‘doing the right thing’
  • Personalisation & uniqueness Customisation of products and personalisation in the consumer journey will be important differentiators going forward. This is accelerating the direct-to-consumer trend and as many as 80% of consumer-packaged goods companies are predicted to migrate to this model by 2025
  • Technology & performance Super-fast delivery in as little as 10 minutes is expected by 2025, changing consumer behaviour to buy more frequently and in smaller amounts, adding more complexity to the logistics. Supply chains will continue to be transformed by a raft of technologies, notably radio-frequency identification (RFID) and robotics, boosting efficiency and transparency

Tetra Pak rejuvenates drinking yoghurt with inclusion of large fruit pieces

Thanks to its expertise in ambient yoghurt processing, particle heating and a new Tetra Top system Tetra Pak announcesTetra Top® 200 Mini with strawberry chunks that it has helped Yili, a leading Chinese dairy manufacturer, to produce the world’s first ambient drinking yoghurt with large fruit and cereal pieces. ​​

Yili launched the breakthrough product in Tetra Top® 200ml with large re-sealable screw caps. It gained immediate popularity, strengthening the leadership position of the company in the fast-growing ambient yoghurt category.

Including large fruit pieces within an ambient beverage product is a challenging process. The heating of the product must be done carefully to ensure that the fruit pieces are not damaged or broken-down during the process, and the filling and packaging need to ensure even distribution of the fruit particles, keeping the quality and integrity of the final product.

Super Leaders are the most influential group in brand preference

Super Leaders – a newly-defined digital community of early adopters and brand amplifiers – are now the most influential group in building, or eroding, brand preference, according to the Tetra Pak Index 2017. Companies that fail to engage with Super Leaders in the right way risk missing the opportunity to harness their influence and help them build their business.

Brands need to focus their online engagement on a new generation of influencers if they are to thrive in a connected, information-saturated world, according to the Tetra Pak 2017 Index. The company has identified a group of Super Leaders, the most influential subset of the wider online community. When engaged, these influencers can become brand advocates to spread messages, shape opinions and help build trust in products.

The report shows that third-party, user-generated content is becoming increasingly important, and is often more convincing than direct communications from brands. By engaging the Super Leaders, brands can concentrate their resources on a smaller group, while reaching a wider connected audience. As case studies in the report illustrate, many brands have already begun this approach.

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 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.

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.
