TetraPak introduced the new Ultra Shape with MiM opening for Tetra Fino Aseptic packages in October 2017. The tear-off opening of Tetra Fino package is hygienic, robust and easy to open for children aged 6 years and older. TetraPak received Alufoil Trophy 2018 award for Tetra Fino Aseptic 100 Ultra MiM. The new package allows dairy and juice drinks to be produced and distributed in small carton pouches at room temperature, and subsequently turned into frozen products in shops or in a consumer’s home. The technology is claimed
to redefine the ice cream supply chain and business model. Tetra Pak’s aseptic technology eliminates the need to invest in freezer infrastructure. Product quality is protected for longer periods allowing the product to reach a broader geographic market.
The packaging is claimed to keep food safe for a long time. It protects against light and oxygen, keeping the contents of the package fresh, nutritious and tasty as the day they were packaged. Tetra Fino Aseptic is available in eight different sizes from 70 ml to 1000 ml that are customizable to meet everyday needs and the low-cost paper-based packages increase profitability. The new package will be available from 2018 in the Greater Middle East, Europe and Asia.
