Multinational food packaging company Tetra Pak has launched the Tetra Classic Aseptic 65ml Cube packaging solution for dairy, juice and liquid food.

The packaging solution is an addition to the Tetra Classic Aseptic range and is designed to allow every six packages to form into a cube.

The aim of the cube is to provide more space, ultimately optimising distribution and storage. Compared to the original Tetra Classic Aseptic 65ml packages, the new packaging offers reduced costs and environmental impact as it requires less secondary packaging and needs approximately 40% less space to transport the same quantity of products. This also means that the product can be made available to consumers at an affordable price.

Tetra Pak product director Hemant Krashak said: “With its robust food protection, minimal use of materials, and efficiency in distribution, the Tetra Classic Aseptic 65ml Cube package provides a simple answer to the rising need of environmentally sound packages while saving cost for manufacturers.

“Many customers with existing Tetra Classic Aseptic filling machines can easily switch to this new package with limited investment.”

Tetra Classic Aseptic Cube has been used in Southeast Asia for coconut milk, since December 2018, in markets where ‘logistics infrastructure is a challenge.’
