Consumers rightly expect food to be safe – and so do distributors, retailers and legislators. For our customers, that means being in full control of production, from the sourcing of raw materials to the retailer’s shelf.

Tetra Recart carton package

Pioneering new ideas

Since launching the Tetra Classic® Aseptic carton in 1961, we have come up with hundreds of new packaging solutions that keep food safe from harmful bacteria. In 2001, Tetra Recart® was the first package on the market to pack traditionally canned foods such as chopped tomatoes, beans and soups in a carton.

We are also pioneers in food safety technologies such as juice pasteurisation and ultra-high temperature treatment. We are continually finding new ways to help our customers respond to challenging market conditions and consumer demands around the world.

Trust and traceability

Traceability is becoming increasingly important in demonstrating food safety for manufacturers and consumers.

Our Food Safety Policy commits us to maintaining the highest standards of safety and achieving full product traceability through the entire food processing and packaging value chain. We back this commitment in a number of ways, including through the development of automated solutions such as Tetra Pak® PlantMaster, a factory-wide control system that fully and seamlessly integrates intelligence from each unit of the dairy production line, and our work to develop the Tetra Pak® Connected Package.
