We work for and with our customers in more than 175 countries around the globe, providing preferred processing and packaging solutions for food. And our customers have said they want to work even closer with us.
Tetra Pak serves international, regional and local companies, supplying many of them with integrated processing and packaging solutions. Packaging Solutions are active in food sectors such as dairy, soft drinks, soy products, wine, juices and prepared food. Processing Solutions are divided into the following categories: dairy, beverage, cheese, ice cream, prepared food and cosmetics. We provide complete machine lines, including equipment, engineering, design, installation, project management and services.
Both packaging and processing markets will experience some significant changes in the run-up to 2030. The global population will climb to more than 8.4 billion, putting ever greater pressure on resources like water, energy and food. Of that total, close to 1.1 billion, or 13 per cent, will be aged above 65 years, refocussing and redefining health issues, and increasing the demand for products and formulations that meet the specific needs of this older generation. We will be hearing more about the circular economy: doing more with less, innovating and recycling materials. Government and industry alike will focus on resource management and certifications. We can expect stricter requirements on recycling, traceability of recycled materials, and water management.
We enjoy working closely with customers on what really matters to them: new product development, brand and product differentiation, and getting products to market faster. Best of all, closer collaboration with Tetra Pak is what customers said they wanted in a 2015 satisfaction survey, with comments like “We should work jointly on the development of new products” echoed many times.
Our recently launched Marketing Services programme draws on our global expertise to support our customers’ brands in a more collaborative way. Our industry experience and global presence enables us to help customers identify new growth opportunities and find unique solutions.
The new service is a one-stop shop covering all aspects of the innovation journey, starting by exploring unique challenges and opportunities.
Next comes brand positioning, developing product formulations and package design. We also help customers plan and support product launches, and then analyse data and feedback to refine the product until it achieves market success.
The new process can be delivered anywhere but it is supported especially well by our global network of Customer Innovation Centres (CICs).The first two locations – Denton (USA) and Dubai – opened in 2015, and more will follow in 2016. Participant feedback is very positive: “We used to struggle with new ideas,” said one. “This method helped us be creative and find new opportunities in a more scientific way.”
