Tetra Pak has introduced an upgraded Ice Cream Filler A3 designed specifically for small to medium producers looking to lower operating costs with minimal investment. The ice cream filler produces up to 18,000 ice cream cones in an hour and features a cone dispenser capable of handling different cones and cups; an easy-to-operate chocolate sprayer; and a precise lid dispenser improving standardization.

These features help manufacturers boost efficiency by reducing waste, minimizing stops and increasing overall speed, while ensuring product quality. Moreover, the modular design of the machine offers significant production flexibility with simple setup and easy equipment changeovers. This allows customers to switch smoothly between different cone sizes or cups, as well as ice cream flavours, in just a few minutes.

Peter Lindstrom, category director at Tetra Pak, said, “The ice cream market is extremely competitive. Our customers face the challenge of providing quality products to consumers while keeping costs down. Our new filler offers an effective solution which improves cone handling and delivers different products on one machine. This significantly cuts operational costs – our pilot tests show that customers can save up to 69,000 Euros a year on the cone dispenser alone, thanks to reduced wastage.”

The company sees particular demand for the line from customers in Southeast Asia and South America where new producers are entering the market, and also in Eastern Europe where existing manufacturers are looking for more production flexibility. The cone dispenser, chocolate sprayer and lid dispenser are also available individually for customers who want to upgrade their existing ice cream filling lines.

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 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.
