Women driving innovation 

The women at Tetra Pak are shaping our future, working across a diverse range of innovative fields to improve access to safe food and drive sustainability throughout the value chain.

Sustainability is woven into every role within Tetra Pak, and nowhere is this more pronounced than in innovation. When asked, some of these women said it’s our environmental commitment that attracted them to the company in the first place. We want to give a platform to our Voices of Innovation – who are not only helping provide safe access to food for all, but also helping shape the future of our planet for generations to come.

Women of Innovation

At Tetra Pak, we have more women leading innovative projects in Development and Engineering than we do men. But this is not the case throughout the industry, where Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) are still seen as a predominantly ‘male’ subjects. We recognise that more diversity leads to new ideas, fresh perspectives and better innovation. The women at Tetra Pak are shaping our future, working across a diverse range of innovative fields to improve access to safe food and drive sustainability throughout the value chain.
