At Tetra Pak we are specialists in complete solutions for the processing, packaging and distribution of food products. Our solutions are specifically designed to be as economical with resources as possible. Dairy products, juices and nectars, ice cream, cheese, food and vegetables and pet food are examples of products that can be processed or packaged in Tetra Pak processing and packaging lines. We focus on keeping the consumption of all raw materials and energy to a minimum during both the manufacturing process and distribution. The processing solutions are also designed to treat the products gently.
Our products are divided into several categories:
Our customers need faster, better and cheaper developments to reduce their operational costs and to increase performance in order to remain competitive. We invest in technology and new products in response to customers, consumer and market dynamics. There are 11 Tetra Pak R&D centres engaged in numerous projects in various parts of the world.
We are committed to running our business in an environmentally sound and sustainable way. We set goals for continuous improvement in our development, sourcing, manufacturing, and transportation activities. As part of that commitment, we take a long-term and lifecycle view, continually improving environmental performance, communicating openly with our stakeholders and reporting regularly on our performance.
