Minute Maid, Coca-Cola’s fruit nutrition brand, is present in more than 100 countries. It is expanding its portfolio in India with the launch of two new offerings in the country – Honey Infused and Vita Punch which will first be made available in Punjab and extended to other parts of North India over the next few months.

On 29 November 2022, Tetra Pak India announced that its Stelo Aseptic, the latest member of its global packaging portfolio, has been chosen by Coca-Cola India for packaging its Minute Maid range of Honey Infused & Vita Punch variants. The company claims this is the first ever Tetra Stelo Aseptic package for The Coca-Cola Company in the world, and the first time the package is being launched by Tetra Pak in the Asia Pacific region.

The unique new tall, rounded, seamless package is designed to create tangible differentiation in the market for the new benefit-led Minute Maid range and with its WingCap 30, one-step opening with DIMC technology, that enables a perfect grip and great pouring experience. In addition to the packaging, Tetra Pak has also provided the processing and filling equipment for the range. Tetra Pak’s filing machines allow the easy switchover between 500ml and 1000ml volumes. Owing to this flexibility, the new Minute Maid range will be offered in both 500ml & 1 liter carton packages in India.

Speaking about the new launch and a decade-strong partnership between Tetra Pak and The Coca-Cola Company, Enrique Ackermann, VP Technical Innovation & Supply Chain Coca-Cola India & Southwest Asia says, “Tetra Pak has been our strategic partner in building capacity and innovation in single serve packs for a decade. We are thrilled to have extended this partnership to multi serve packs with the launch of our new Minute Maid honey infused range in India. The Tetra Stelo Aseptic packaging has aided in offering differentiating characteristics for our Minute Maid range, which we believe will appeal to our consumers.”

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
