At Tetra Pak, innovation is the result of a dedicated process to develop an idea into a product or a new way of working which adds value to our business and our customers. We realize that innovation is one of the mainstays of our survival, growth, and market leadership.
Tetra Pak knows that food packaging innovation is an enabling technology of modern life. In the 20th century, technologies that allowed for the transportability of food, the preservation of quality, the mass merchandizing and distribution of products were all essential ingredients in the development of new kinds of communities and a higher standard of living around the world.
Despite the fact that food packaging’s rapid development is no less responsible for the unique character of contemporary life, it is often less celebrated than advances in transportation, telecommunications, medicine and other important areas of modern innovation. Indeed, in some cases it might even go unnoticed as people take innovation in food packaging for granted.
In the 20th century aseptic technology, for example, revolutionized milk consumption around the world and was recognized by the Institute of Food Technology as the most important food science advancement of the 20th Century, as it allowed for milk and beverages to be available where they hadn’t been before.
Since then, Tetra Pak has been assuming a crucial role as a leader in delivering real customer, retailer and consumer value from evolving ideas in ways that are meaningful and responsive to the food industry, food retailers and society as a whole.
