Innovation means transforming knowledge into new products and services or into new processes and new working methods. Striving for renewal, or innovation, is one of the most important driving forces in the global economy. Innovation stimulates competition and affects our very existence. It creates jobs, increases growth and mobilises factors that can help a nation to improve the competitive strength of its economy.
At Tetra Pak, innovation is the result of the total process of developing an idea into a product or a new way of working which adds value to the business. Innovation embraces everything from hatching an idea to reaching the marketplace with a new or improved product. Whichever way you define it, it is important. Innovation is one of the mainstays of our survival and growth.
Our Product Development Centres are there to help you turn your concepts into fully-fledged commercial products, tested, evaluated and modified to perfection. Use our centres to fine tune new processing concepts, perform trials and test runs, and evaluate final results – all with the help of our experienced technicians and under conditions of absolute secrecy.
Tetra Pak was honoured with the "IFU 2019 Innovation Award" at the annual Juice Summit in Antwerp, Belgium for its new low-energy JNSD (Juice Nectar Still Drink) line.
While maintaining product safety and quality, this new JNSD line solution can greatly cut down energy-consuming heat treatments – reducing overall energy costs by about 67%. It also reduces water used in cleaning in place (CIP) and sterilization in place (SIP) by about 50%.
Our new heating solutions can be tailored to your unique business needs, from small production to large-scale innovation; from rigid to highly flexible; from milk to liquid food. Our modular approach means you get the exact heating solution you need, and don’t pay for features you don’t.

Tetra Pak Processing has set up four strategic competence areas to drive innovation: cleaning technology; mixing, blending and dosing: food safety; and heat treatment technologies. Each area has a network of technology specialists who share knowledge within our organisation and with customers.
One example of how our focus on key competencies has spurred innovation comes from our Dairy category, where our expertise in mixing, blending and dosing led to the creation of OneStep™ processing technology. Since its launch in 2010, the technology has transformed UHT milk production, providing an effective single-step process that eliminates the need for pasteurisation pre-treatment and intermediate storage.
Do you, or your company, have an invention that could be revolutionary for the food packaging industry in the future, or simply a technology, method or design that could support the packaging of food products for tomorrow's consumers? Tetra Pak may welcome and have an interest in the further development, if your invention meets the need for Tetra Pak's present or future product portfolio.
