Travel-free product trials

Our Lund PDC offers real-time, high-resolution live streaming of product trials. The service not only saves customers time and money but also overcomes many of the restrictions imposed on face-to-face gatherings and travel during the pandemic. The service began with support for two of our systems, TBA 19 and Tetra Pak A3 Compact Flex. We have now added our Tetra Top system, which makes this powerful facility available to an even wider range of customers and products. With virtual participation, you can keep your product development program going without going anywhere. Your people can follow the trial live wherever they are too. They can even see what’s happening inside some of our machines. And to maximise the long-term usefulness of your virtual visit, we deliver a ‘take-home’ package that includes:

  • Written technical report
  • Webinar-type video of the trial, for unlimited free use
  • Samples from the trial itself
  • Man testing food product in lab
