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.

Tetra Pak acquires leading ma​​n​ufacturer of mozzarella cheese making e​quipment

Tetra Pak has acquired Johnson Industries International, a company specialising in the design, development and manufacture of equipment and lines to produce mozzarella cheese. The ​company also manufactures a range of cheese cutting, shredding and brining equipment.

These additions broaden Tetra Pak’s wide-ranging cheese technology portfolio and strengthen its position as a leading global provider of cheese manufacturing solutions.

Based in Wisconsin, U.S., Johnson Industries International, is one of North America’s principal suppliers to the high-quality, high-volume segment of mozzarella cheese manufacturing.

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.

Tetra Pak Launches Enhanced Standardization Unit

To produce milk with a specific percentage of fat content, an important step in dairy production is to separate fat from milk. Fat is then added back to the product according to the required specification through a process called standardization.

​​Designed for automatic in-line standardization, the new unit enables manufacturers to reduce the variation of so-called “cream giveaway” from the previous +/- 0.020% to +/- 0.015%.

New Tetra Pak PlantMaster gives manufacturers end-to-end plant control

Tetra Pak has launched a new version of the Tetra Pak® PlantMaster, enabling manufacturers to programme their entire plant through a single data management system. The upgrade includes the Tetra Pak PlantMaster MES Suite (Manufacturing Execution Systems), a new software programme specifically designed for the food and beverage industry, which provides a user-friendly interface. 

In the food and beverage industry, manufacturers often have equipment from different suppliers in one plant, using separate information systems. Some of these machines even require manual data collection. With the new software, the Tetra Pak PlantMaster provides a single set of tools that integrate all operations, from incoming raw materials to finished, palletised products. This gives manufacturers complete control of the plant. It streamlines data collection, facilitates accurate data analysis and, ultimately, improves efficiency.

Tetra Pak Identifies Food & Beverage Opportunities in Senior Market

Tetra Pak has released a consumer study to highlight opportunities in the food and beverage market for seniors, those aged 60 and over, the fastest growing consumer group in the world.

Libby Costin, VP Global Marketing at Tetra Pak said: “Seniors spend 20% of their income on food and beverages. They have more disposable income than previous generations, and are poised to become one of the most important consumer groups over the next decade with a total spending power of US$10 trillion by 2020. This creates a huge opportunity for manufacturers to respond to their needs.”

This report is the latest edition of Tetra Pak’s annual Consumer Generations Whitepaper series which analyses consumers by their age, needs and spending habits. It investigates senior consumer trends in food, packaging and shopping experience, and identifies product opportunities for producers, based on insights from 27 countries across developed and developing markets such as Japan, the US and Brazil.

Tetra Pak sees growth opportunities for 100% juice

The market for 100% juice should return to growth despite global economic slowdown and the recent debate around sugar, according to Tetra Pak’s 100% Juice Index report.

According to the company, the combination of emerging growth hotspots and slowing decline in established markets is stabilising 100% juice and bringing it back to growth going forward to 2018.

Insights from the report show that 100% juice remains a significant part of the average consumer diet, with more than 40% of people drinking it every day. Furthermore, consumers say that they are willing to pay a premium for juices that they associate with healthy choices.
