Tetra Pak PROTECTS WHAT’S GOODTM. That’s not only our motto—it’s an aspiration that’s reflected in every aspect of our business. As the world’s leading food processing and packaging solutions company, we are committed to making food safe and available, everywhere. And our commitment extends far beyond protecting the contents in a package. It also includes support our customers’ businesses, a responsibility to reduce our environmental impact, and shape a better future for all our stakeholders—from our employees, to our suppliers and the communities in which we operate.
A History of Innovation
More than 50 years ago, our founder, Dr. Ruben Rausing, began testing an innovation that would change the way food was distributed around the world. He wanted to create a practical, cost-effective package for milk and cream—which up to this point were sold primarily in glass bottles or loosely over the counter.
With this inspiration, Dr. Rausing founded Tetra Pak in Lund, Sweden. In 1952 the first Tetra Pak machine was delivered and in 1961, Tetra Pak launched a breakthrough innovation: the world’s first aseptic carton–a package which enables milk and other perishable liquid foods to remain on the shelf for more than six months without refrigeration or preservatives. By integrating high barrier aluminium and polyethylene with carton board and using a special technique to sterilise the package’s contents, aseptic technology ensures that both the food and the packaging are free of harmful bacteria. The International Institute of Food Technologists recognised aseptic processing technology as “the most important food science development of the 20th century.”
Making Food Safe and Available, Everywhere
We work closely with our customers and suppliers to produce complete processing, packaging and distribution systems for the food and beverage industry.
Tetra Pak not only supplies packaging machines but also processing systems, distribution equipment, software and support services. We’re a one-stop shop that can meet all our customers’ food processing and packaging needs.
