Tetra Pak, a food processing and packaging solutions company, has announced the closure of its packaging material production facility in Jurong, Singapore. 

The company will consolidate its operations with other factories in the region.  

This transition, set to occur over the next 12 months, aligns with the company’s ongoing efforts to optimise its manufacturing footprint, enhance customer service, and respond to evolving market dynamics. 

Despite the closure, Tetra reaffirms its commitment to maintaining high-quality and reliable service for its customers in Singapore.  

The company said that it will retain core operational functions in the country, including business management, human resources, project centres, IT, and marketing. 

The Jurong factory, operational since 1982, has been a key supplier for the Singapore market and an export hub, but changing market conditions necessitate this consolidation to stay competitive, the company said.

Approximately 300 employees affected by the closure have been notified, with the company saying it remains committed to supporting them via outplacement and other schemes.

In collaboration with the country’s Food, Drinks and Allied Workers Union (FDAWU), Tetra is adhering to Tripartite guidelines and has consulted with FDAWU prior to the announcement.  

By the end of the year, Tetra will relocate its corporate office to a new Singapore location, establishing one of its largest offices in the Asia Pacific region. 

This new facility will have a capacity of up to 250 people. 

Earlier this month, the company announced strategic investments to enhance recycling capacity for carton packages in the EU.
