More than ever, consumers are clamouring for alternatives to traditional foods and beverages that still offer the flavours, textures and nutrients they are used to. If you’ve developed an innovative, single-cell product that meets these demands, your choice of partner can play a big role as you prepare to move to commercial production. At Tetra Pak®, we can work with you at every step of the way: from adapting your process for upscaling, to successfully launching your products and growing your business in the future.
No matter if your process involves filamentous fungi or mycelia, yeast or algae, we give you the integrated edge to manage strategic issues from end to end. Our experts work together with your team to understand the needs of your process and your strain, and help you choose and configure the optimal technologies from our market-leading portfolio of adaptable solutions. With 70 years of food production experience, we also offer in-depth knowledge to support you in solving your challenges and executing your plans – whatever they may be.
Upstream processing includes all the equipment before the bioreactor. These processes are all about creating the optimal environment in which your strain can grow – while preventing contamination from unwanted and competing organisms. Aseptic handling and sterilization, which are traditionally downstream concerns in other types of food and beverage processes, are therefore critical in the design of upstream solutions for biomass fermentation.
We have decades of experience developing highly hygienic solutions for aseptic processing of food and beverages. Based on the needs of your strain, we can work with you to find the right solutions for flexible, reliable and cost-effective performance in your upstream processes.

A number of variables go into choosing the right bioreactor. Creating the optimal conditions for the strain is of course the main priority, but there are also a number of important practical considerations: from scalability of the technology, to useability for your operators, to CAPEX as well as OPEX.
Whether you are preparing for pilot testing or designing a full-scale commercial plant, we can support you in finding the optimal bioreactor solution to match your needs. Our fermentation experts can work with your team to better understand your processes, and thereby help you explore the range of equipment available to you.
Downstream processing includes all the equipment after the bioreactor. The equipment needed for downstream processing will be dependent on both the needs of your strain as well as the nature of your intended products. With experience from a diverse array of different food and beverage processes, Tetra Pak® experts can help you identify potential solutions for your downstream challenges. This includes everything from technologies for concentrating, dewatering, filtering and washing your microbial biomass, to equipment for formulating, moulding and forming finished food products and more.
